Thank you for Rising to the Challenge

Ashland University Day of Giving

Thousands of you joined the #AUeaglepride movement on Thursday! You showed your pride by posting, tweeting, captioning, and giving generously to the Ashland Fund! 

Thank you for making a great first impression on our Day of Giving. Your response to our call soared beyond our expectations.

Students, faculty, and staff shared the aspects of Ashland University for which they are most thankful. Many of the areas they had gratitude for were areas that received votes throughout the day. 

Congratulations to our challenge winners:

  • AU Pride Challenge ($5,000) - Athletics
  • Eagle Rising Challenge ($1,000) - Athletics
  • Rinse & Repeat Challenge ($1,000) - UG Center for Academic Support
  • First Impressions Challenge ($1,000) - Athletics & Greek Life (each receive $500 due to tie)
  • Soar to Victory Challenge ($1,000) - The Ashland Fund

Social Media Challenge Winners:

  • Caption Contest ($500) - Greek Life
  • AU Pride Selfie ($500) - AU Swim and Dive

These areas have won a significant amount of money thanks to the Alumni Association, but more importantly Ashland University can continue to provide Accent on the Individual because of the gifts made today.
