BUIES CREEK, North Carolina – For the third consecutive year, Campbell University celebrated #CampbellTAGDay, also known as Thank a Giver Day, on Oct. 20, 2016.
On the Thursday of Homecoming Week, Campbell recognized the generosity of alumni, donors, faculty, staff, and friends by placing orange tags around campus. The tags marked buildings, statues, classrooms, and many other items that have been made possible by gifts to the university.
Students took to social media on #CampbellTAGDay to post selfies with the tags and videos thanking those who make the Campbell experience possible. The Office of Annual Giving filled the day with even more gifts by giving free t-shirts to students and sponsoring a selfie and video contest. Winners are announced below.
We have compiled an overview of our 2016 #CampbellTAGDay social media posts on Storify.
