On Thursday, May 2, the UI will celebrate the 2nd annual "Phil's Day" on campus.

Phil--short for philanthropy--refers to the many faculty, staff, alumni, and friends who make donations to the UI, as well as the collective impact of their gifts.  If you have made a donation to the university or have been the beneficiary of a gift to the UI (or both) . . . Phil's Day is for you.  We're taking a day to celebrate philanthropy on our campus, and we hope you'll join us.

Please consider participating in the following events, and help us spread the word to students.

Phil's Day events:

All day:
We're tagging campus! Stickers, posters, and gold ribbons will highlight buildings and programs made possible by donations, and represent people who give, or benefit from private support.

11:00 a.m. -- 1:30 p.m.
Postcard signings in Kautz Plaza and MERF
Stop by, sign a thank-you card for a donor, and get your picture taken in the photo booth.

The rain and cold weather location for Kautz Plaza postcard signing is Hubbard Commons, IMU.

1:30 p.m.
