College Night Endowment Fund

College Night is a tradition that reveals the very heart of Alabama’s only public liberal arts institution, the University of Montevallo.

Homecoming 2023 logo The Legacy ContinuesThis more than century-old tradition, has brought out the best in so many students and alums, and holds a special place in their memories.

Laughter, tears, joy, passion unfurled, the fruit of hard labor that was committed to with the collaboration of bonded peers who’ve become family, given center stage under the bright lights of Palmer Auditorium. Nights like this encompass so much – the full experience is simply beyond words.

To honor this unique tradition for students past, present and future, the College Night Endowment Fund was created to provide financial support in perpetuity. Specifically, earnings from the endowment will be used for expenses and equipment that are not a part of the University’s budget.

One of the greatest ways to pay it forward is to share this cultural experience and tradition with future UM students through giving. As we look forward to the second Saturday in February, we have set a goal to raise $10,000, which will bring the total endowment to $100,000.

To continue this century long tradition, we need your help. So please, once again, remember your side pride – Purple or Gold – as well as your overall love for UM, and make your contribution today.
