Class Giving Challenge
As we all come together virtually to recognize our milestone anniversary classes this year, it's important to also recognize the Wagner students and families that have experienced unexpected financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to provide further assistance to these individuals, this year's Reunion Class Giving Challenge will support the Make a Difference Fund at Wagner College. Gifts made to the Make a Difference Fund support students and their families in need of emergency financial assistance during this time. The class that raises the most funds will receive special recognition during our virtual celebration. We thank you for your continued support of Wagner, and our students through this important cause. Go Seahawks!
First off, we would love to celebrate your reunion and share it with all alumni! Please take a screenshot or a photo with your phone and share it with us. A posed photo looks the best, so ask everyone to smile, wave their hands, or do something silly!
We also ask that you pass on any updates that alumni want to share with the Alumni Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. New email addresses, phone numbers, career or life updates are all helpful!
