Charter Day

Charter Day_jpg.jpgOn April 16, 2014, Jacksonville University will commemorate its 80th birthday and signing of its charter. In honor of our founding the University will host Charter Day, a daylong celebration highlighted by the student dedication of the newly refurbished River House. In addition, local alumni as well as those across the country and around the world, will host a series of “global toasts.” 

Whether on campus or celebrating in your community, students, faculty, staff, and alumni are encouraged to join in the festivities, and wear your green and white with pride. 

Learn more about Charter Day Global Toast locations and other information.
