Charter Day & Global Toast
Every year, Jacksonville University celebrates its birthday and the signing of its charter. In honor of our founding, the University hosts Charter Day, a celebration involving service to our community, a reception on campus, and a Global Toast for our friends around the world who cannot be with us in person for the festivities.
We invite all Dolphin alumni, families and friends to "gather, give, toast & post" during Charter Day using #JUToast.
- GATHER with Dolphin friends in person or online
- GIVE back to your alma mater with a gift of any size to support JU's Greatest Needs
- TOAST your alma mater - raise a glass to celebrate JU's birthday
- POST your selfies of toasts and service projects on social media using #JUToast and #JUGives
What is Global Toast?
Global Toast is our way of encouraging all JU friends and families to come together and raise a glass in honor of the University’s birthday. You can get together as a group of Dolphins or simply post a selfie from your office, living room, or the best local haunt in your city using #JUToast. This is your chance to virtually connect with Jacksonville alumni, friends and fans around the world. The connections you can make are infinite, so spread the word and who knows who you might be clinking your glass with.
How do I organize a toast in my city?
Due to COVID, we are not hosting in-person toast parties this year. Be sure to plan your own toast and post the photo using #JUToast on Instagram - tag us @jualumni for your chance to be featured!
