Help Seniors Give Back to Their Alma Mater


The Lion Shrine was a gift from the class of 1940. Where did all the grads stand for pictures before this?!


Calling all students, community members and kids on a rope: this is your time to shine! The 2011 Senior Class Gift committee is currently accepting proposals for this year’s gift until September 17 at 5 p.m.

The class of 1861 set the bar as the first class to fund a senior gift, now leaving it up to the 150th graduating class to carry on the tradition.

For inspiration, check out the list of past gifts, then come up with an idea to top them. After submissions are reviewed by a committee of students, faculty, staff, and administrators, seniors can vote on the top three ideas. The winning gift will be announced November 2.

This is your chance to leave your mark on Penn State, so slap on your thinking caps and start submitting!
