Our goal is to educate the campus community about Big Orange Give, its impact on the University, and how students, faculty, and staff can support the University’s efforts.
Lifesize Big Orange GIVE letters will be on campus in various locations for students to interact with and photograph.
Big Orange Give Class Cab (like the Cash Cab game show)
9:00am – 1:00pm
We will have two golf carts (or UT vans depending on the weather) which will be decorated and branded for the event. Unsuspecting students will enter the “Class Cab” as simple passengers taking a normal ride to class, only to be shocked when they discover that they’re instant contestants on the Alumni Office’s educational and entertaining game.
As students are driven to their destination they will be asked questions about Big Orange Give, the Alumni Office, UT facts, etc. and have a limited amount of time to answer. As they answer questions right, they receive funding for university related organizations, programs, or colleges of their choosing. Get three questions wrong and they are dropped off prior to meeting their destination. Special guest hosts will be participating throughout the event.
“Donors are the Key to Success” game on Pedestrian Walkway
10:00am – 2:00pm
Students are invited to Pedestrian Walkway on Tuesday to participate in an educational game called “Donors are the Key to Success.” During this event students will play a Big Orange Give themed board game to learn more about donor and alumni support of UT. After playing, students will have an opportunity to select a key from a peg board and try that key on the lock of a treasure box.
Live Big Orange Give Thermometer on Pedestrian Walkway
Celebration of Big Orange Give Success on Pedestrian Walkway
11:00am – 2:00pm
SAA members will table on Pedestrian Walkway from 11-2 pm. SAAs will celebrate the conclusion of Big Orange Give (and by this time…hopefully us reaching our $2.25 million goal). Students will complete “You Big Orange Give so I can…” signs, help film a donor thank you video, and will receive a UT Alumni Swag for participating.
