    Tag Day

TAG (Thank-A-Giver) Day


TAG Day is a campus-wide event that engages and educates students, faculty, and staff about the importance of giving back.

Aquinas relies on the support of generous donors to sustain and strengthen the student experience. Generous alumni, faculty, staff, sisters, and friends play an integral part in everyday life at Aquinas and we want to say THANKS!

On November 21, 2017 we will recognize our generous donors by celebrating Thank-A-Giver (TAG) Day throughout campus. TAGS will be placed around campus, on people, places and things, to represent the tangible impact our donors have on Aquinas.

How can students get involved


For a chance to win a $500 scholarship!

Record a short video of you saying thanks to donors with items tagged around campus and post it on your Instagram or Twitter feeds with the #aqtagday hashtag. The Foundation Office will vote on their favorite student video, and the winner will receive a $500 scholarship. 2nd and 3rd place will also receive a prize.

*If your account is private or to confirm we see your video, email your video to vjb002@aquinas.edu. Deadline for submissions is 7:00 pm on TAG Day. All videos are subject to being posted online.

For a chance to win a free AQ Fleece jacket

Take a selfie with an item tagged around campus you’ve benefited from and post it on your social media feeds with a short note of thanks and the #aqtagday hashtag. Students who post their selfie to social media will be entered for a chance to win an AQ Fleece jacket.

Winner will be selected by the Aquinas College Foundation Office for the most creative, sincere, and viral selfie of thanks.

Between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., stop by our tables on the first floor of the Academic Building or on the first floor of the Sturrus Sports and Fitness Center to show us your video or selfie and write a short thank you note that will be mailed to an AQ donor.

As you wander around campus, either physically or virtually, note all of the tagged buildings, equipment, rooms, people, and more! Can you imagine Aquinas without these things? Thankfully, you don't have to. Share your appreciation for our generous donors on social media by using the hashtag #aqtagday.
