Applications Open for Senior Class Gift Committee

Applications to be a part of the 2012 Senior Class Gift Committee are open now until Friday, January 21, 2011. Students graduating at any time during the 2012 calendar year are encouraged to apply if they are passionate about philanthropy at Penn State.

Benjamin Witt, the 2011 Senior Class Gift Overall Chairperson, says the committee is responsible for maintaining a tradition that has existed at Penn State since the 1860s. The committee is looking for applicants with the desire to improve Penn State during their last year as a student. It’s a great way to leave a lasting mark on the university.

Being a member of the committee is a time commitment that consists of attending weekly meetings and completing tasks on your own time, but is manageable and worth it, according to 2011 Communications Chair Ryan Hartnett. ” I have learned so much from being on the committee…it is really interesting to see how the process works and to have a say in what the class gift will be.”

The application and your current resume must be turned in to room 201 Rider House (112 South Burrowes Road) by 6 p.m. on Friday, January 21, 2011.

Caity Rogowski

I'm quite odd, a little creepy, and pretty awkward, but we'd probably get along.

In real life I'm a THON 2011 Supply Logistics Captain, a Homecoming 2010 Public Relations Captain, a member of Zeta Tau Alpha, a dancer in ETCH Dance Co. and I tweet a lot.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
