Fridays at UW-Eau Claire are known as “Blugold Fridays.” While this usually means that students, staff, and faculty don their blue and gold gear and hope to come across Blu, the campus’ mascot, Blugold Friday takes on a new meaning when we are able to celebrate the kindness and generosity of all who have supported the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for our students.
As of the morning of March 27, 271 members of the Blugold community have donated $40,750 to support students affected by COVID-19. We have so much Blugold gratitude for all who have stepped forward to support students who need assistance now more than ever before.
As you can imagine there are thousands of students affected in different ways by the pandemic. The Dean of Students Office has established a process for students seeking temporary, short-term, and financial assistance, and students can fill out the form to describe their needs and request assistance here.
Now more than ever, Blugolds fly together!
