Begin quote I give back to USD in order to support our students and student-athletes because I admire their commitment to bettering themselves, the university community, and the world through their studies here. Giving back to USD makes me feel more invested in the workplace and proud to be an employee at this amazing university. – -Steven Heath, USD Treasury and Financial Systems Manager

Students First!

The 2017 campaign runs from April 5 through May 5, and, like last year, each employee donor will be invited to join President Harris at a big celebration and thank you party on May 10. Additionally, every donor will be entered in weekly drawings throughout the campaign to win Torero gear and lunch vouchers for La Gran Terraza. There will be final grand prize drawings at the party for:

  • A Bartell Hotels staycation getaway package including a one-night stay at Humphreys Half Moon Inn and brunch for two
  • Four field level box seat tickets to watch the Padres v. Arizona Diamondbacks at Petco Park on May 19th
  • Four field level box seat tickets to watch the Padres v. Arizona Diamondbacks at Petco Park on May 21st
  • An extra paid vacation day
  • A private, catered lunch for four with Dr. Harris!
