2023 Reunion Gift Project: Renovation of Residence Hall Community Areas

“We are looking forward to seeing the smiles on the student faces when they see their remodeled community spaces in the residence halls.  We all remember our days on campus, gathering with friends.  These community spaces are also an important first impression in the recruitment process. Join us in supporting this worthwhile project!” 
— David ’68 & Fran Corbly ’68 Upperman

The Project

Each year, classes celebrating a banner reunion join to fund a project of significant importance to our alma mater. The 2023 Reunion Gift Project will begin the renovation and remodeling of the common spaces in the residence halls.  This year our goal is one men’s and one women’s residence hall and then next summer those reunion classes will be invited to sponsor two more residence halls or key living spaces.  This typically will be the main lobbies, but in Kresge would likely include the living spaces in each unit, or might include a basement gathering area in other residence halls. It’s a way we can say to our current students we value you.   

Your Gift

The Goal of the 2023 Reunion Gift Project is to raise $250,000.  Will you join us by making an early pledge or gift to the project?

Pledges may be made to cover 3 Decembers with fulfillment by December 30, 2024. Visit https://www.asbury.edu/reunion-gift-project/give/ to pledge or make a one-time gift.
