For the Class of 2020
This Saturday would have been Graduation Day for the Class of 2020. While the weekend will not include the big celebration our graduates hoped for and deserve, we can still celebrate and honor the Class of 2020 in a meaningful way.

If you are able, we ask that you make a gift of $20.20 in honor of the Class of 2020 to any area of the University that's meaningful to you. Your gift shows our new graduates that the Marlin community is proud of them, believes in them, and sees them as a part of the bright future ahead.
