Student Involvement

Why Should I Give?

Show your love, passion and appreciation for what UE is giving you. As a student at UE you have benefitted from the generosity of UE alumni, parents and friends. Whether you receive a scholarship, study in Ridgway University Center, attend athletic events or simply use the equipment in labs, donations to UE have positively affected your UE experience.

As a UE student (and future alum), we ask that you join the tradition of helping your fellow students. Of course, no one is asking students to give a lot of money- only to invest in your UE experience through actions like:

  • Saying “thank you” to donors during Philanthropy Week (Feb 24-28)
  • Join Student Alumni Association
  • Volunteer on campus and in the community

Senior Class Gift
