On Nov. 15, the Truman community showed its appreciation for University donors by hosting Tag Day.
Items all over campus provided by private donations were tagged. Some of the items that were tagged include computer labs in Violette Hall and Pickler Memorial Library, classrooms and the Cyber Café in Magruder Hall, gardens and outdoor sculptures, the Severns Theatre and Class of 1950 Lobby, the bell wall and more. Signs across campus also identified intangible items made possible by private donations such as scholarships, internships and faculty development.
The goal of Tag Day is to raise awareness of the impact private donations have on the Truman campus. Last year, nearly 7,000 alumni, parents, faculty/staff, students and friends of the University donated to Truman. Tag Day included the opportunity for students to say “thanks” by signing thank you notes to Truman donors. Tags will remain up through Nov. 21.
