May 1 is Phil’s Day at the College of Engineering!

On Thursday, May 1, the UI -- and the College of Engineering -- will celebrate the Third 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.  The University of Iowa is taking a day to celebrate philanthropy on campus.

Here is the Schedule of Events (schedule is tentative and subject to change):

All Day
Campus Tagging
We’re tagging campus! Posters and gold ribbons will highlight buildings and programs made possible by donations, and represent people who give, or benefit from those gifts.

Phil’s Day prize patrol: wear your “I Am Phil” sticker (available at postcard signings), and you could be a winner!
11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Postcard Signings
Stop by and sign a thank-you card for a donor!
Engineering Location: Second Floor Lobby of the Seamans Center

I Love Iowa. I Love Phil.
Stop by the Pentacrest and tell us why you love Iowa—and Phil! Student Philanthropy Group members will be on hand to take your photo.
1:30 p.m.
