Alumni Cords

Alumni Cord

Welcome to the Alumni Community, Class of 2024!

Being an alumnus of Snow College means you will always have a home here. You have attended college affordably, gained resume-worthy experience, developed a plan for your future, and, most importantly, discovered your true self. We can't wait to see where your journey takes you, the successes you achieve, and the lives you change. We celebrate your accomplishments!

As you move forward on your bright future, we ask that you look back to see other students aspiring to become like you. To support them, we invite the Class of 2024 to purchase an Alumni Cord for $20.24 (in honor of your graduation year). All proceeds will go towards scholarships! Moreover, we want to recognize you as our newest alumni at the commencement!

We also invite parents, faculty members, and friends to buy an Alumni Cord and join the movement of paying it forward for future Badgers. We sincerely appreciate and recognize every individual who contributes to Snow College.

Alumni Cord History & Recognition

In 2018, the Snow College Alumni Association introduced a giving opportunity for graduating students. For a donation of $20.18 (in recognition of their graduation year) to the Alumni Scholarship Fund, we honored their gift with an orange Alumni Cord to be worn as part of their graduation attire. Since other sanctioned regalia took the form of ribbons or medals, these cords were unique and easily recognizable. This tradition of philanthropy continues annually.

These cords look stunning when worn against the graduates' blue or black gowns. However, what is more significant is the spirit of giving they represent and the tradition of philanthropy this started. The proceeds from these cords were added to the Alumni Scholarship Fund, which currently funds one full tuition scholarship per year. Each class that raises $2,500 or more is recognized on a donation plaque in the Huntsman Library.

Students have expressed their excitement for the opportunity that this alumni cord has provided them to 'pay it forward' and show gratitude for the assistance they received while attending Snow College.

This year, we are thrilled to continue this tradition with a donation of $20.24 in honor of the Class of 2024. We invite every student, parent, faculty member, and friend to purchase an Alumni Cord and join the movement of paying it forward for future Badgers.
