On Feb. 21, as part of TAG (Thank-a-
Giver) Day, the Student Philanthropy Committee covered campus with more than 500 green tags honoring what you make possible at Binghamton. This
visible representation is a way of
both thanking you and educating
the campus about how much you
improve lives every day.

“What makes TAG Day so special is that it’s a campus-wide show of gratitude,” said Caitlyn Smith, director of the Binghamton Fund. “Tuition and state support only cover so much, and donors help bridge the gap by providing critical resources for students and faculty that make Binghamton exceptional.”

Although specific tag locations are too numerous to list, areas highlighted this year
included group study rooms, bike racks, the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development, theaters, works of art, the Memorial Courtyard, the Freshman Research Immersion lab, Zurack Trading Room, John Arthur Café, Benet Alumni Lounge and the new Kim Korean Student Center.

In addition to tags, stickers were also distributed to students, faculty and staff indicating “I
Give Back” or “I Benefit.”

“We wanted them to know that so much of what we have is because of your generosity,”
Smith said. “Through TAG Day, our campus community understands the impact of your
incredible support.”
