HOO RAH RAISE is the College’s first annual day of giving. This giving day replaces the University-wide GivingToHoosDay, which has been discontinued. Alumni, parents, and friends of the College have the opportunity to raise money for the College Fund by making a gift and sharing the campaign with their networks. The College’s goal is to reach 500 donors!
