The Eleemosynary Bug
Alumni Association - posted on 3/20/2011
Have you caught the eleemosynary bug?
Eleemosynary is an adjective that means, "of, relating to, or dependent on charity; charitable." The bug has a strong hold on Lakeland students and alumni right now, and you could be next!
During your time at Lakeland, you benefited from the generosity of others—through scholarships, outstanding faculty members, new buildings and the advancement of technology on campus. Now, you have the opportunity to show your gratitude and participate in the eleemosynary spirit, the spirit that has helped this college to thrive for nearly 150 years.
This year, in anticipation of the college's Sesquicentennial, Lakeland has started a new tradition that allows alumni the chance to leave their mark on campus with a personalized brick or paver. You can arrange to have your name, class year, Greek affiliation, major, etc., permanently engraved on a brick or paver that will be installed in one of two plazas on the main campus prior to the Sesquicentennial All-College Reunion in June 2012.
If you are affiliated with one of Lakeland's seven centers around the state, when you purchase a brick or paver for the main campus, your name will also appear on a commemorative plaque at your local center and online.
To date, over 300 alumni have already committed to purchasing a brick or a paver. Members of every graduating class since 1938 have participated in this giving program.
For complete details on how to purchase a brick or paver and to see all the options, go to lakeland.edu/leaveyourmark
