Photo Brief: Philanthropy Awareness Day

Senior LaGary Simpson Jr., a media management and political science major, signs a thank you board to all alumni donors at the Philanthropy Awareness Day held on the Rock this past Friday. Tuition only covers 70 percent of the annual cost of an undergraduate education at UM, and Friday marked the symbolic point in the semester at which tuition stops paying for a student’s education and contributions from donors and other sources kick in. The event was hosted by the Student Philanthropy Council and the Office of Annual Giving to bring financial aid donations to light. Holly Bensur // Staff Photographer
