Members of UMBC’s Student Alumni Association (SAA) hit Main Street in the Commons Tuesday to share their love of philanthropy with the passing campus community. Thanks to every Retriever, near and far, who supported UMBC on this day of giving.

“Giving Tuesday really makes you think about the people who have helped you at this point whether it is at home, in school, at work, etc. It really makes you appreciate what others do for you and what actions you can take to pay that service forward to others,” said SAA member Karndeep Singh, a senior biochemistry and molecular biology major.

“Here at UMBC, we have a strong community built on providing service to others. Even though we are a young university, we have great support from our alumni who devote a lot of time and effort to supporting the current student body by offering scholarships, internship opportunities, and career opportunities!”

Did you miss #GivingTuesday? It’s never too late to support the great things happening here at UMBC.
