Linfield students celebrate Tuition Free Day

Tuition Free Day at Linfield CollegeTuition Free Day, hosted by the Student Alumni Association, will be celebrated Thursday, April 23, at 7 p.m. in the Richard and Lucille Ice Auditorium in Melrose Hall at Linfield.

This year’s celebration will feature a panel discussion on the importance of philanthropy, secrets to success after graduation and life after Linfield. Students are invited to network with panelists at a reception following the panel. Panelists include Samantha Bartlett ’09, who works at U. S.Bank and is a member of the Linfield Rising Alumni President’s Circle leadership Team; Kirby Dyess ’68, principal at Austin Capital Management, and former member of the Linfield Board of Trustees; and Dave Baca ’78, managing partner at Davis Wright Tremaine law firm and a current member of the Linfield Board of Trustees.

Tuition and fees cover 86 percent of the cost of a Linfield education. Donor support helps to cover the difference. April 23 represents the approximate point, 86 percent of the way through the school year, when revenue from tuition and fees no longer cover educational costs. From this day forward, tuition is “free,” thanks to generous donors.
