The sun is shining at RMU today! May is such a great time to be on campus.
You may not know this, but alumni make up the largest constituent group of the RMU family, at 40,000-plus strong. This past Saturday at the undergraduate commencement ceremony, we welcomed over 845 new graduates into the RMU Alumni Association. Congratulations, recent grads!
As the sun shines today on campus (and hopefully the rest of the summer, keeping my fingers crossed) there is still one little cloud we could use some help getting rid of. Currently only around 3-4% of our alumni actively contribute to the university financially. With so many alumni in the RMU family, if we could get this number up even just a little bit, we could do so much more for our students.
That's why I'm excited to tell you about our Double Your Fun(d)! campaign. One of our alums has graciously offered to match any gift made between now and May 23. Make a $25 gift, it becomes $50! Give $100, it becomes $200! You get the picture.
Furthermore, every gift we receive helps us increase RMU's standings in the US News and World Report rankings for alumni participation, which in turn increases the value of your Robert Morris degree.
Please help us take advantage of this incredible opportunity by giving to the Double Your Fun(d)! campaign today.
Of course, there are plenty of other ways to participate and be an active member of RMU's alumni family. Join us as we cheer on the Buccos on Friday, June 27, at our annual RMU Night at PNC Park. Tickets are only $22.00 and seats are in the all-you-can-eat section. Please visit the alumni website to se what might be happening in your neck of the woods.
Again, these are a few of the many ways that you can support your alma mater while having fun and staying connected to the university.
Thanks for your support, and, as always, I hope to see you at an upcoming event.
