The 1749 Circle

The 1749 Circle is a special philanthropic society created to recognize the loyal alumni who support the University consistently. This society is not about how
much you give; it's about the simple act of giving, year after year. Upon your third year of consecutive giving to the University you will be recognized as a
member of this very special circle of loyal donors. Reunion members will be recognized among their peers with distinctive nametags at Alumni Weekend.
