The Ultimate Thayer Experience!

One lucky donor will win the ultimate Thayer experience! This is an exclusive opportunity to be one of a limited few who have ascended the tower stairs in Main to experience the panoramic campus view and see the bell and inner workings of the clock up close. The winner plus one guest will be escorted to the tower at a mutually agreed upon time. Photos are encouraged, and the lucky individuals will get to add their signatures to the many this space has collected over the years. You can even help wind the clock! The winner will be randomly selected the morning after Founders Day and announced with our final results.
