Say “thank you” to our donors with #FIUThanks


Thanks Day is one of the biggest days of the year because it gives students and the FIU community a chance to give a huge “Thank You” to our donors. This year, Thanks Day falls on Nov. 13 & 14, and the FIU News team wants to make it just a bit more interactive.

So, we encourage you to…

1. Take a sheet of paper.

2. Write “Thank you, ____” to the donor with whom you feel the biggest connection. Do you study in the library a lot? Thank Steven and Dorothea Green! Or if you like to visit the Frost Art Museum, thank Patricia and Phillip Frost!

3. Take a photo or video of your note and then upload it to Instagram, Twitter or Vine with the hashtag #FIUThanks.

4. In the caption, write why exactly you’re thanking your donor.

“My favorite class of the semester is at the Ryder Business Building.”

“I like to people-watch outside in the Green Library breezeway.”

5. Post it. That simple!


We’ll be collecting your thank you notes on our Storify so our donors can see all the Panther appreciation.
