We’re putting our own Corsair spin on National Gratitude Day with a campus-wide celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day on Tuesday, September 19.

Thanking donors who support UMassD

Join the UMassD Advancement Office from 11-3pm in the Campus Center or the Library and say thanks to the thousands of donors who support the University each year with a written note or video message.

Gratitude with a Corsair theme

We’ll have a pirate photo booth, a pirate name game, and chocolate treasures. Faculty and staff donors from July 1, 2016 to present can stop by a table for a baked treat, with our gratitude.
