Philanthropy Day: A Student’s Perspective

STAT (Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow) treated students to food, activities and performances by Seismic Step, the B’Naturals and the Bearitones in celebration of Philanthropy Day. Students also had an opportunity to write thank-you notes to faculty and staff.

“I’ve only been a part of two Philanthropy Days, but I can definitely say that this year was something I’ll never forget. As a co-founder and executive member of Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT), I feel a great responsibility to spread UC pride across campus. At this year’s Philanthropy Day, we had ice cream, trivia games, fun facts placed around campus and a craft station to create an Ursinus pennant.  This event expresses to the student body that Ursinus would not have the facilities, beautiful campus environment, athletics, student organizations, great faculty and staff or financial aid without donations from alumni, parents and even students. This year, we invited Seismic Step, the Bearitones and the B’Naturals to perform to draw an even larger crowd. It truly was a celebration with students gathered in Olin Plaza to share in the festivities that rejoice in UC history and tradition. I’m incredibly proud to say that I experienced an overwhelming sense of community at this Philanthropy Day. I just know that future Philanthropy Days will continue to create Bears for life. I hope you enjoy the photos below!”
