Alumni, students, and supporters of Southern Utah University (SUU) have a unique opportunity to both display their school pride and contribute to student success by purchasing SUU license plates. These distinctive plates not only serve as a symbol of allegiance to SUU but also serve a greater purpose by funding scholarships for current and incoming Thunderbirds.

The impact of these scholarships cannot be overstated. For many students, financial barriers can hinder access to higher education. However, thanks to the generosity of those who purchase SUU license plates, these obstacles are mitigated, opening doors to opportunity for deserving students. Alexis McIff, a recipient of the SUU License Plate scholarship, expressed her gratitude, emphasizing the profound impact of such support on students' lives.

Beyond the altruistic benefit of funding scholarships, purchasing an SUU license plate also brings practical advantages. In addition to supporting student success, buyers receive the perk of free on-campus parking, excluding housing parking lots. This added incentive enhances the appeal of the SUU license plate, making it a compelling choice for supporters of the university.
