Students First Giving

Penny the Pig is the official mascot of the C-N Students First Giving campaign! At the beginning of each school year, incoming students are given a piggy bank and asked to fill it with their spare change to reach a certain goal.


At the end of every semester, Penny hosts a "Round-Up" where she collects all the banks from the students. If the students meet their goal for the year, they all get a reward! All the money Penny raises goes toward the Carson-Newman Fund, which provides for Carson-Newman students in need. 

Keep a look out for Penny around campus at other events, too! You never know where she'll be (she's quite social). We hope to see you soon!
