Global Toast

Global Toast

We invite all Dolphin alumni, families and friends to "gather, toast & post" during Charter Day using #JUToast.

  • GATHER with Dolphin friends in person or online
  • TOAST your alma mater - raise a glass to celebrate JU's birthday
  • POST your selfies of toasts and service projects on social media using #JUToast and #JUGives

What is Global Toast?

Global Toast is our way of encouraging all JU friends and families to come together and raise a glass in honor of the University’s birthday. You can get together as a group of Dolphins or simply post a selfie from your office, living room, or the best local haunt in your city using #JUToast. This is your chance to virtually connect with Jacksonville alumni, friends and fans around the world. The connections you can make are infinite, so spread the word and who knows who you might be clinking your glass with.

Interested in toasting from home?

Be sure to plan your own toast and post the photo using #JUToast on Instagram (tag us @jualumni)! If you'd like to be featured on social media, throw your Fins Up, take a photo and email it to before April 10.
