#RaiderStrong

We are #RaiderStrong.

As we face much uncertainty during this time, we are sure of one thing: We are #RaiderStrong.

#RaiderStrong is all about sharing the stories of our Mount Union community rallying together to lift each other up during difficult times.

Join us on Facebook (@mountunionalumni) and Twitter (@mountunionalum) for a month of caring, May 16 – June 16, in highlighting how the Mount Union community is taking care of one another, our loved ones, our communities, and our world in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Here are the ways that you can be #RaiderStrong.

Support the Student Emergency Fund

You can make a BIG difference in a time of great need!

In an effort to provide support to our students with pressing financial needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, we invite you to consider making a gift to the Student Emergency Fund. One hundred percent of every dollar given to this special fund will be used to help our most vulnerable students in their time of need.
