Founders Day – Student life

Help to enrich student life at the Abbey

Goal: 10,000

College is about more than receiving an excellent academic foundation; it’s also about growing into the person you are meant to be. Students learn just as much outside the classroom as they do inside, and the Office of Student Life cultivates essential opportunities and environments to help foster both personal development and community.

This Founders’ Day, you can enhance student leadership opportunities through the Office of Student Life.

When you make a gift today and designated it to “Student Activities”, you will help:

  • Purchase a new golf cart to enhance the student event experience
  • Add water bottle stations at strategic points around campus
  • Add new benches around campus, particularly on Abbey Lane and at the Grotto

Other aspects of student life that you can support are Campus Ministry, Student Government, the student-led Crusaders Newspaper, Debate Team, Residence Life, Intramural Sports and the continual needs of the St. Joseph’s Adoration Chapel. You can support one or multiple designations by using the secure form to make your selection below.

Make a Gift to Support Student Life Today!

And, as a special thank you for a donation of $25 or more during the Founders’ Day Challenge, we will send you a Tiny Saint Benedict keychain as well as a bracelet featuring Saint Benedict’s medal.

“As a student at Belmont Abbey College, I was involved in many extracurricular activities and programs that helped form me into the individual I am today. As a resident assistant, I learned how to lead and inspire others, prioritize my responsibilities, and create communities among my residents. The activities and programs offered by the Student Life offices helped me step outside of my comfort zone and connect with other students who I now consider to be my lifelong friends”
