Please run the following in the 2/24-27/14 issues of IIT Today, Student section: Free Food and Fun Times at MTCC Thank-a-Thon! IIT alumni and friends support scholarships, provide new lab equipment, and fund building renovations—help us show our donors that we appreciate their generosity! Visit the MTCC Bridge on Thursday, February 27, for Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day—complete with free food, prizes, and a chance to show your gratitude. Stop by the appreciation stations from noon-2 p.m. to create thank-you cards, sign a thank-you banner, and record a short thank-you video. Participants will receive a raffle ticket for each station they complete and can exchange their tickets for prizes—earn all three tickets, and you’ll be entered in a raffle to win dinner for two at Bridgeport favorite Nana. But the fun doesn’t end at lunch! Join us at 5 p.m. for the 2014 Student Gift kick-off and Lousy Bowling tournament in The Bog. Even those who are lousy bowlers can win at Lousy Bowling, since the object of the game is to knock down as few pins as possible without using the gutters. We’ll have free food, prizes, and trivia games, with a faculty/staff/student tournament from 5-7 p.m. and student tournament from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Questions?
