On October 20, hundreds of students expressed their gratitude to the benefactors whose generosity makes the Carlson School great. The first-annual Gopher Gratitude event welcomed students, faculty, and staff to celebrate donors.

The Gopher Gratitude celebration highlighted the numerous ways donors enrich the community. More than 300 students wrote messages of gratitude on thank you cards that will be sent to the alumni and friends of the Carlson School whose gifts support scholarships, facilities, and more.

Attendees also displayed the many ways giving impacts them on chalkboards as they posed for photos, received T-shirts, enjoyed pizza and cupcakes, and shared in the spirit of generosity.

The Carlson School hopes to host the event annually, well into the future.
