Georgia Southern’s Office of University Advancement celebrated the University’s generous donors at the annual Marvin S. Pittman Society event in April. The weekend of activities is a way for the University to honor those who have provided lifetime gifts of $25,000 to $1 million or more to Georgia Southern. The Society consists of five giving levels: the Lantern Walk, Sweetheart Circle, Southern Fellows, Founders’ Guild and the President’s Club.

“Our donors are passionate in their support of the University,” said Salinda Arthur, vice president for University Advancement. “We are grateful for this opportunity to show them our appreciation and thank them in person for making a difference at Georgia Southern. Their gifts enable the University to fund scholarships and other academic initiatives that provide our students with enriching and life-shaping experiences.”

The weekend of activities featured a reception, a tour of the new Ted Smith Family Football Center and a recognition luncheon for new and advancing members in the Marvin S. Pittman Society. The festivities also included a Roaring ‘20s Casino Night at the Eugene M. Bishop Alumni Center.
