TAG Day -- a day to Thank A Giver. This day consists of the Student Alumni Association “tagging” campus with posts of each building and opportunity made possible by our amazing donors as well as writing postcards to thank those donors. About a month before this day, the members of SAA meet to organize the 8-hour long event. During this process, students sign up for shifts, design a TAG Day T-shirt, discuss and decide on prizes, and most importantly, promote the event to the rest of the campus.
