Alumni Rally, Raise Participation Rate 3% During 72 Hour Cor Challenge

The 72-hour Cor Challenge resulted in 678 total gifts630 of which were from alumnito the university and raised the Constantin College alumni participation rate from 13.97 percent to 16.57 percent. During the three days of peer-to-peer social media and online appeals from individual alumni and the Alumni Relations Office, alumni donated $70,303.75 to the Cor Fund.

The classes of 2011 and 2012 claimed the highest participation rates after the Cor Challenge at 35.6 percent and 36.7 percent respectively.

"We'd like to extend a special thanks the class of 2008, who, due to the tireless efforts of people like Joseph Boyne and Bob Bellamy, raised their class participation rate almost eight percent without the assistance of a formal challenge," said Leah Looten, alumni relations officer.

In another notable success, Dr. David Atkinson '99, a Dallas-based psychiatrist, challenged the class of 1999 to produce 19.99 new donors for the 21st Century Challenge in addition to those who had already given. That challenge was met in almost 24 hours, and Atkinson donated $1,999 in honor of the occasion.

The faculty staff participation rate is also at its highest in eight years at 70.32 percent.
