Pi Day of Giving surpasses fundraising goal

Pi Day 2021

VCU Engineering and Tau Beta Pi raised $4,054 in this month’s Pi Day of Giving fundraising campaign to benefit the Completion Grant fund.

In the days leading up to Pi Day on March 14 — in honor of engineers’ favorite irrational number — donors could vote for which professor they wanted to see get a pie in the face at a virtual alumni and student event on March 18. One dollar equalled one vote. The goal, naturally, was $3,141.

These professors and staff were still smiling even after getting pied:

Caroline Budwell, Ph.D. Laura Keller
Michael Cabral, Ph.D. John Leonard, Ph.D.
Henry Donahue, Ph.D. Patrick Martin, Ph.D.
James Ferri, Ph.D. Carrie Peterson, Ph.D.
Frank Gulla, M.S. Rachel Wasilewski
Jennifer Jordan, Ph.D.
