Student Giving Day 2017

On Wednesday, March 29 students saw Jenga sets, a Facebook Live feed, trivia, and a pie-throwing station at Stafford Commons and Wolf Plaza as well as a giant thank-you trifold in front of SAS Hall — all for Student Giving Day.

This day was meant to engage students in giving back to the university while also educating them about where their tuition dollars go and why their choice to give back makes a difference.

DASA joined the Office of Annual Giving and Student Government, as well as campus partners from across the university, in establishing a dialogue on campus about how philanthropy affects all 34,000 students at NC State — whether they realize it or not. The DASA development office offered free giveaways, as well as a hands-on activity to demonstrate the importance of private donations to the continued growth of NC State. Students were encouraged to color an architectural rendering of the new Gregg Museum of Art & Design, the expansion of which was funded by $4M in private donor support. The division also filmed video of students explaining the impact of philanthropy on their individual student experiences.
