Individual students and campus organizations are invited to participate in the Annual Student Thank-A-Thon, which will be held in the SUB on Monday, January 19, Tuesday, January 20, and Wednesday, January 21 from 9 pm - 11 pm.

"The Thank-A-Thon is an opportunity for students to personally thank all the people, companies, and organizations who generously give to Centenary by writing a 'thank you' postcard," commented Sr. Director for Annual Giving, Fred Landry. "There is also a competitive aspect, in that the campus group with the most participants over the 3 scheduled days will win $100 for their respective organization."

Pizza and snacks will be provided. If you are interested in assisting in this important initiative and thank those who make a Centenary education possible for so many students, come by the SUB on either or both of those scheduled days.
