Global Toast

Every year, Jacksonville University celebrates its anniversary on April 16. In honor of our founding, the University hosts Charter Day, a celebration involving service to our community and a Global Toast for Dolphins around the world!

Global Toast

We invite all Dolphin alumni, families, and friends to "gather, toast & post" for our annual #JUToast. Global Toast encourages all JU friends and families to come together and raise a glass in honor of the University's anniversary.

How can you be involved?

  • GATHER with Dolphin friends in person or celebrate at home.
  • TOAST to your alma mater - raise a glass to celebrate JU's anniversary!
  • POST your selfies of toasts on social media using #JUtoast and tag @jualumni

Send us your photos!

If you would like to be featured on JU’s social media, throw your Phins Up, take a photo and email it to before April 16. Be sure to include your full name, and your graduation year in the email!

This year in recognition of the 90th Anniversary Celebration, prizes will be awarded for the best photo and the best video so send us your most creative Phins Up for a chance to win!
