Organizations often present lapel pins
to members, and the members wear them as a sign of allegiance, commitment, and pride. Nowhere is this more evident than on a college campus! There are many ways to use lapel pins with students and alumni to promote school pride, giving, and loyalty.
Sorority and Fraternity Lapel Pins
College students receive lapel pins when they join a sorority, fraternity, or honors organization. Receiving and wearing a lapel pin of a Greek organization is a privilege reserved only for its members. A lapel pin makes a great gift for new members who are proud to display their loyalty to the organization. It also promotes the organization around campus – an easy way to gain free advertising for your group!
Alumni Lapel Pins
Alumni also show their school spirit with custom lapel pins
. Give alumni a lapel pin for homecoming or a school event and encourage them to show off their pride before, during, and after the event! College teams and groups should use pins to retain commitment from alumni members, too. For example, send pins to alumni football team players. The pin will serve as a reminder of the team, experiences, and fond memories for the alumni. This strategy isn’t just for sports teams! Choirs, bands, debate teams, and other college organizations can also benefit from alumni lapel pins.
Donor Lapel Pins
A lapel pin is a great way to recognize alumni giving, too. When alumni donate to the school, send them a lapel pin as a thank you. This lapel pin should have an exclusive design that designates the wearer as a contributor to the school. Encourage givers to wear the lapel pin at all college events. The lapel pin will serve as valuable peer recognition for the wearer and also motivate other alumni to donate to the school, too!
Graduate Lapel Pins
Finally, alumni can show school pride by wearing lapel pins with their graduating year on it. Each year, create a lapel pin that displays the graduating year on it. Give it to students at graduation or make it available in the book store for purchase. Students will cherish the token of all their hard work!
