The college is publicly asking alumni, family and friends to support students, faculty and staff and help drive what’s next. 

Here’s 4.9 reasons why your support matters.

This year’s event is supported through multiple challenge gifts through which Belk College alumni, students and friends can help unlock additional funding.
