“We are so thankful for the alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of the university who graciously give every year for our Signature Weekend of Giving,” said Caroline Kitchens, ATU director of annual giving programs and interim director of alumni relations. “The Arkansas Tech family comes together to think bigger for our institution every year, and it is inspiring to see the results.”

This marked the seventh consecutive year in which ATU has conducted a Signature Weekend of Giving.
