Provide contact information and the birthday(s) of your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews or siblings and we’ll send Bluffton gifts on special birthdays. And it’s free! All we ask in return is that you continue to share your Bluffton stories, and maybe bring them to campus to experience May Day, Homecoming, Riley Creek Festival, or maybe a theatre production, concert or ballgame.
We will celebrate your family’s newest addition by sending a Bluffton bib. Gifts for newborns will be mailed as soon as the university learns of your addition. Children will continue to receive gifts as they grow, for their 5 and 10 year birthdays. We want to help our Baby Beavers show their family connections.
No longer a newborn? Go ahead and provide information anyway. They will receive gifts at the appropriate time.
Contact information will be shared with the admissions office when your student reaches
high school age. Bluffton also provides a Alumni Grant to children, grandchildren and siblings of Bluffton alumni.
In a 1998 edition of the Bluffton alumni magazine, then known as “Scope,” an image of a grinning little girl standing confidently in Bluffton apparel can be found. Tessa Short, 18 months at the time of the photo, returned to campus 18 years later to continue a fourth generation legacy.

Of course you also know other students who might flourish on Bluffton’s campus – the neighbor boy, the papergirl, students in your Sunday School class, etc. Provide their information below and we’ll be sure the admissions office contacts them as well.
