UB Day of Impact 5-28-2020

Day of Impact 2020

We are excited to celebrate our FIRST ever Day of Impact on May 28th, 2020! Our goal is to provide content for our entire community, while also raising $60,000 to support students. In this time of need, the funds that are of priority are the Annual Fund (area of greatest need), Counseling Services, and Educational Access for our students.

The main focus of our Day of Impact is to connect our University of Bridgeport community and rally together to support our amazing students.
