Our Story

Vanderbilt University will bring down one of its tallest campus buildings when it conducts a controlled implosion of the Carmichael West Tower 3 residence hall on Saturday, July 27. The removal of Carmichael Towers 3 and 4 this summer to make way for three new residential colleges in the West End Neighborhood aligns with Vanderbilt’s Academic Strategic Plan, a key pillar of which is to strengthen the undergraduate residential experience, as well as FutureVU, the university’s initiative to enhance the places on campus where community members live, work and learn.

Your support and all proceeds will directly benefit our new residential colleges, designed to immerse students in a holistic approach to education, ultimately advancing Vanderbilt’s mission: to create engaged citizens who can change the world for the better.

So many nights spent in group study sessions at towers or for a late night Quiznos run. Those underground hallways were creepy, but wouldn’t change a thing. Can’t wait to see what new things Vanderbilt continues to create

FAQ's

When will my items ship? Items typically ship within 2-4 weeks after the campaign end date. While we do our best to only feature items with reliable inventory, the delivery timeline may extend if your items encounter backorder issues. We'll let you know as soon as possible if this occurs, in which case you'll have the option to switch your item with another similar one, or wait for replenished inventory. Also, please note that IgniteCX's liability of the product is complete upon delivery, as confirmed by the shipping company. When will my credit card be charged? If you are making a donation, your credit card will be charged immediately after you place your order. If you are purchasing items, your credit card will be processed within 2 business days after the end of the campaign, rather than at the time of the original order. If, for some reason, this campaign does not reach its batch order minimum requirements, your item order may be cancelled. If you purchased items and made an additional donation, your total contributions will appear on your credit card statement as two separate transactions. How will this charge read on my credit card? Look for the descriptor text on your credit card statement for purchases and donations made through this website to appear similar to this example: BT [CAMPAIGN NAME#####].

Some credit card issuers may display a status of “recurring” on your statement. This does NOT mean that you will be charged multiple times for your donation or purchase. It is simply an indicator for the credit card issuer of how our payment gateway, Braintree, handles payments.
Can I make changes to my order? Please do your very best to be sure all of your order information is correct before placing the order. Because all items in this store are made to order, it can be very difficult to make changes. However, if you absolutely need to make a change, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Can I return or exchange my item? All sales are final unless product is defective. All items are produced and made to order at the end of each campaign. Please double check sizing before placing your order. What is your policy regarding bulk shipments? Once you have received your bulk shipment it is your responsibility to confirm that all individual orders have been accurately fulfilled. Any issues with a shipment must be reported by contacting us here within 2 business days of the shipment proof of delivery date. Other questions about this campaign? Contact us HERE.
