Members of the University’s Class of 2007 will be given a unique opportunity to show their support for Illinois State at this year’s commencement ceremonies. A Spirit Tassel Challenge asks members of the graduating class to donate a minimum of $20.07 to the University’s Foundation, with all dollars designated for student-to-student scholarships.

Graduates who make a donation will be given a commemorative tassel to wear during the commencement ceremonies. They will also be recognized by President Al Bowman in his commencement address.

Alumni can also be part of this new giving program by matching a student gift. Get involved by calling the Illinois State University Student Foundation at (309) 438-4483, or by sending an e-mail to the Student Foundation.
