Giving Tuesday - over $5,000 raised. Thank You!

Crandall University project raises money to provide winter coats to incoming international students.

Winter Coats for International Students

Giving Tuesday is celebrated annually as a way to cap off one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year, which begins the day after the American Thanksgiving holiday, and includes Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

For 2018, Crandall’s Giving Tuesday project sought to raise enough money to purchase 50 winter coats for incoming international students, and raised a total of $5,060 for that project.

“Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project – we are thrilled that so many chose to be a part of helping us welcome our international students,” said Chris Robb, Crandall’s Senior Director of Enrollment Management. “It’s a huge adjustment, moving to another country, and we hope these coats will play even a small part in helping our new students make that adjustment.”

Growing International Community

While Crandall has long welcomed a small number of international students, the numbers have increased this year – more than 20 countries are represented across all of Crandall’s programs – and are expected to grow even further in the future.
