Alumni Appreciation Week 2017

March 20th - 24th students, faculty, and staff will celebrate their favorite superheroes - OUR ALUMNI!

Alumni Appreciation Week 2017 from Saint Michael's College on Vimeo.

Throughout the week, students learn the importance of philanthropy and how our graduates support the overall Saint Michael's experience both as donors and volunteers. 

To highlight the many contributions of our alumni, families, and friends, purple bows are placed on gift plaques throughout campus. While the bows highlight only the tangible gifts on campus, they serve as a reminder to reflect on the impact that our donors have on all aspects of campus life. Students, faculty, and staff are then invited to stop by our Thank-a-thon to write thank you postcards to alumni donors. During this time, members of the senior class are invited to stop by and participate in their Senior Class Gift. 

Thursday, March 23rd is our 4th Annual Purple & Gold Day, a virtual school spirit day to celebrate being a part of the Saint Michael's community. Alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear SMC colors, gather with SMC friends, family, and co-workers, and take photos to share on social media using #smcvtalumni or by emailing events@smcvt.edu. Saint Michael's alumni, families, and friends are also invited to participate in one of our regional Purple & Gold Day socials hosted by volunteers throughout the country.
