Thank-A-Giver Day (TAG Day) is on Monday, February 11. This day provides the IWU campus community with the opportunity to thank the donors who support Illinois Wesleyan. IWU celebrates each year in mid-February because it marks the symbolic point during the academic year – about 70% of the way through – when tuition dollars run out and support from alumni and friends, our endowment, and external grants kicks in for the remainder of the year.

Thank you to all donors who help make the IWU experience possible!

It’s almost game time for our 25th college reunion. On behalf of organizing committee, I hope that you are planning to return to Illinois Wesleyan University on October 5-7th to celebrate the best class in IWU history (the only class to be ranked #1 in the Midwest for four consecutive years).

We have planned a host of great activities for you and your family. We’ll be hosting a special Happy Hour for the Class of ’93 in downtown Bloomington on Friday night from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Tony’s Tacos. This will be a great chance for us to catch up and reminisce about our college days. We’re looking for special pictures from our college days so please send your favorite college photos to Melissa (Gadrinab) Beaver at shesacontender@hotmail.com.

On Saturday, we will have a special reunion tailgate at the football game and our reunion celebration on Saturday evening. A full schedule of reunion activities can be found at here. Please make sure to register and check out the Alumni website to see all of our classmates who are planning to attend. I’d also encourage you to reach out to your IWU friends and encourage them to come back for the 25th reunion.

We are hoping that our class will make a splash by endowing a scholarship in honor our 25th reunion. We need to raise $25,000 to create a scholarship that will be awarded annually to help a student attend IWU but we need your help! I hope you will join me in giving a gift to IWU in honor of our reunion ad to help the next generation of IWU students. To make a gift click here and note the Class of ’93 Endowed Scholarship Fund the notes section.

I look forward to seeing you soon!
