TAG WEEK: Nov. 13-15

UHD alumni and donors have shaped our University through gifts of generosity. To express our thanks, the Gator community—students, faculty and staff—is invited to visit a Thank-A-Gator Station, Nov. 13-15, and write a note of thanks and/or have their photo taken which will be shared during #GivingTuesday on November 27.

Signs in the shape of a tag will be placed throughout campus at specific locations that identify the many ways gifts from our alumni and friends have shaped our University.
