Dragon Salute Month

What is Dragon Salute Month?

April has officially been dubbed our 2nd Annual Dragon Salute Month, dedicated to helping the class of 2022 raise funds for their senior sendoff gift. It is our hope to allow each future graduating class to leave behind a legacy of which they can be proud, a testament to their hard work. 

The possibilities for such gifts are endless and can take many forms, such as instating new scholarships to aid our student body or making physical improvements to campus. Students may also participate by designating a gift to an area of campus that has positively influenced them.

The goal for the 2022 challenge is 100% participation! 

What better way to honor the class of 2022’s achievements than by helping to engrain it in our memories for years to come?

Ways to Take Part

  • Submit an entry for the Pint Glass Design Contest (closed for this year)

Give Back

  • Donate to Dragon Salute Month 
  • Volunteer during your senior semester at local non-profits in our community
  • Write letters to students and convey messages of support, and encouragement
  • No gift is too small! Participating is more important than the size of your gift. Just be counted!

Graduation Toast 

The Graduation Toast is an event to honor our class and to welcome you all to the ranks of Tiffin University alumni! This year’s toast will be held on Friday, April 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the gym in the Gillmor Student Center. 

If you make a gift in honor of Dragon Salute Month (no matter the size!), you will receive your Class of 2022 pint glass at the event.

Dr. Lillian Schumacher will be giving a short speech of congratulations to the Class of 2022 and then will raise a glass in a toast to the Class of 2022.
