In celebration of the university's 55th Anniversary, alumni and friends who contributed $55 or greater were automatically entered into a drawing for an all-expense paid trip for two to our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. This prize includes two round trip tickets, two nights and three days stay in a downtown hotel, and two tickets to the newly opened Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. This prize is sponsored by Ian Tomlinson '88 and Reginald Vigilante '88, UVI alumni, and owners of OmniSystems.
