The Student Alumni Association showed appreciation to ACU donors by flooding the Campus Center with notes written by students.
“We want I Love ACU day to become a day that students look forward to,” said Alex Abston, vice president of SAA. “It is an easy way to give back to ACU and show our appreciation for people who pour into our campus financially, academically, and spiritually.”
This is the second year of I Love ACU day. Samantha Adkins, SAA adviser, said she is looking forward to the turn out this year.
“We were blown away by how it just took off, we wanted to keep the same particular idea and run with it again this year,” Adkins said.
Abston, junior pre-law communication major from The Woodlands, said she was also pleased by last year’s outcome.
“We had a great turnout for our Post-it note activity,” Abston said. “It was so cool to walk into the Campus Center and recognize the blessings that surround us every day.”
The sticky-notes from students can range from silly to sincere.
“It’s really cool to see all of the different things that people say,” said Adkins, . “From warm cookies in The Bean to particular buildings to particular faculty members that have meant something to them.”
Appreciation days such as I Love ACU also bring together alumni, students and donors.
“I just hope that days like these focuses the campus back on alumni and students,” Adkins said. “There is something special about this place; a lot of the things people love at ACU aren’t possible without donations.”
Alumni were also encouraged to share what they love about ACU throughout the day on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #iloveacu.
