Tuition Freedom Day symbolizes the day a student's tuition is no longer sufficient
enough to pay for the cost of attendance at Benedictine University and our
donors cover the rest. Tuition Freedom Day is a great opportunity to incorporate the whole campus community in a celebration of the role philanthropic contributions have in financing each student's education. It is a chance to raise awareness.
The Donor Awareness canvas is a physical representation of BenU students' appreciation for all that donors do for Benedictine University. During Tuition Freedom Day, students that are on campus sign the canvas and write notes of gratitude to donors. After the Donor Awareness canvas was unveiled at the Scholars Society celebration, it was hung in the Krasa Center in front of the University Development offices for all to see. Don't forget to sign the canvas on Tuition Freedom Day on Wednesday, March 30 in these two locations:
11 a.m.-1:15 p.m.- Krasa- interior hallway leading out towards quad
The Benedictine University Scholars Society is made up of a prestigious group of endowed scholarship and award founders. At the annual Scholars Society celebration, these founders and donors have the opportunity to meet their scholarship recipients sharing their stories and goals. Each year we select an Impact Award recognizing the scholarship that had the most impact on their student recipient. In 2015 this award went to Lisle Savings Bank.
