What they are saying about Parkside Day

Director of Athletics Andrew Gavin

“Parkside Day, just like athletics, is about showing your pride for the Rangers! For me, it means an opportunity to celebrate our University’s past, present, and future! It is important because it fosters and highlights a culture of philanthropy, of appreciation, of celebration, and pride. Parkside Day is an awesome opportunity to celebrate the successes of both our current students and our alumni! I give back to UW-Parkside because I believe strongly in our mission and our vision, and I can clearly see the impact of my donations on our students!”
