1,000 Thanks and Giving

On behalf of the Dean of Students Office and the Newman Center, we are pleased to continue the 1,000 Thanks and Giving program, a space for Bengals to give thanks to those in our campus community who have made a difference to them. Now in its seventh year on campus, the 1,000 Thanks and Giving program is continuing remotely. Please take a minute to complete a form online here: 

Every year we try to reach the goal of 1,000 thank-you notes to our community during the month of November. Once we receive the thank-you, we will get the note out to the recipient.  

If you have questions, please email
