In honor of the University’s 108-year history, donors gave anywhere from $1.08 to $108 and beyond to help students facing financial emergencies that could threaten their education. Funds raised from this campaign support the Emergency Scholarship Fund and Red Hawk Pantry (see story, page 40) – both of which help students through financial crises – as well as to cultural and educational programs across campus.
