In honor of the last day on campus for the Class of 2013 and the senior dinner, Duhawk Day is a worldwide event, and we want Duhawks in every city, state, and country to take part! Wear purple and gold, get together with fellow alums to share your Loras stories, and of course, take pictures! We want to see your Duhawk spirit! You can share pictures by emailing them to alumni@loras.edu, posting them to the Alumni Facebook Page or sharing them via Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #DuhawkDay.

Click here to GIVE NOW and become 1 of the 523 ...and invite your friends to do the same!

On Duhawk Day 5.23, help us reach the challenge of 523 donors! If 523 donors give by the end of Duhawk Day, Loras will receive $15,000 from the anonymous alum. Every gift makes a difference and counts toward the 523 donor challenge; from $1 to $1 million, each donation will get us one step closer to our goal!

Cheer them along the way
Onward to victory

Let's hear a cheer for the varsity
Long may they reign supreme
Fight 'til the echoes ring
For the glory of the team
