  1. How can the extended campuses participate in the donations on Friday?

  2. Lori Sherrill says:

    Hello Margaret,

    Extended campuses can send in donations to the Office of Academic Affairs c/o Francine Case who is collecting for the extended sites.  Donations do not necessarily need to be received by Friday.  We will be accepting donations through the middle of next week to allow time for donations from the extended campuses to be received.
