2015 Senior Class Gift Proposals Now Open
Can you imagine Penn State without its famous campus cornerstones? What would campus be without the Creamery Courtyard, the Veterans Plaza, or the Lion Shrine? Senior class gift ideas, like these these wonderful landmarks, are proposed each year and are enjoyed by all classes to come.
Penn State’s Class Gift Campaign Committee is searching for the three best senior class gift proposals. The committee is accepting proposals through this Friday, Sept. 19, and hopes to find an idea that will leave an everlasting impression on those who journey to campus in the future.
While many class gifts are campus features, numerous gifts have instead benefitted the Penn State community in the form of scholarships and endowments for various university programs.
“We’re looking for everything and anything, but the overall mission of the Class Gift Campaign is to promote and encourage philanthropy towards Penn State,” said Geoff Hallet, Penn State’s adviser for the campaign.
Everyone — whether a student, graduate, or State College community member — is encouraged to submit any ideas, from scholarships to landmarks to upcoming renovations. “We’re looking for ideas that are not only feasible, but will also draw the attention of the senior class,” Hallet noted.
Submit whatever comes to mind throughout the week; all ideas and proposals are welcome. A volunteer committee comprised of students, professors, and other faculty members will choose the top three proposals. Students can then vote for their favorite of the top three proposals in the beginning of October. If you want to leave a lasting legacy at Dear Old State, don’t hold back!
