SU vs. Hendrix: Alumni Challenge

  • News Image

Southwestern University and Hendrix College are competing for the first time in football on September 28th. Since both schools have first-year football programs, SU has accepted Hendrix’s challenge to compete both on and off the field.

Ahoy Pirates! The gauntlet has been thrown down. 

Off the field, we are asking all alumni to join in a participation challenge by making a gift today. Help us win big by scoring a field goal ($3 donation), a touchdown ($6 donation) or any amount you prefer by kicking as many extra points as you’d like! This challenge is all about participation — the university with the most alumni making gifts (of any size) during the challenge period will win!

As added incentive, the president of the losing institution will have to wear the winner’s colors and Dr. Burger is determined to protect his Pirate pride.

Alumni donations must be received before 4 p.m. on Friday, September 27, for them to count toward the challenge.

Spread the word on social media to ensure that SU alumni are “All In!”
