PDS/USN Tigers across the country will come together for 24 hours during a fun and fulfilling challenge designed to build community spirit and support students, faculty, and staff. The Tiger Give Back Challenge is 8 a.m. Thursday, March 28 through 8 a.m. Friday, March 29.
This fundraising event was previously known as the 36 Hour Give Back Challenge and last year raised $92,000 from 482 donors to support the school's Annual Fund. The Annual Fund accounts for roughly 6 percent of USN’s operating budget. It supports need-based financial aid, campus and environmental stewardship, visual and performing arts, athletics and lifelong wellness, faculty development, academic programming, and the school’s highest priorities for the year.
The 2019 Tiger Give Back Challenge is led by Co-Chairs Mollie Shmerling Perry '03 and Bobby Perry '03 as well as committee members Scott Collins '05, Ivanetta Davis Samuels '86, Scott Ghertner '85, and Shannon Paty '68. They will kick off the challenge with a party from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 27 at Fat Bottom Brewery, 800 44th Ave. N. All Nashville-area alumni, parents, and friends of USN are welcome to attend. RSVP here.
The Class of 2019 will attend 62 colleges and universities this fall. Since it's difficult to read all the college names on T-shirts in the May 1 photo of seniors, here is a list of the colleges they have chosen to attend.
The fitness center will operate summer hours Wednesday, May 29 through Friday, Aug. 2 and be open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. Student-athletes are welcome to work out at school, except during TSSAA Dead Period, Sunday, June 23 through Saturday, July 6.
