Voting Now Open For Penn State’s 2021 Class Gift

Penn State seniors can now cast their votes for the 2021 Class Gift. Although no one wants to think about graduating and leaving college life behind, the gift is a great way to leave a legacy and shape the future for incoming Penn Staters.

Students with senior standing graduating in May, August, or December 2021 can vote online or by texting “ClassGift2021” to 41444.

Before making your selection, consider this year’s two options:

Support For Complete Penn State

The Complete Penn State program supports students who’ve encountered financial or personal hardships that threaten to end their academic journeys. Complete Penn State offers a few services, including re-enrollment support, mentoring, and scholarship assistance, each designed to keep students on track to completing their degrees and achieving their goals.

Student Access & Equity Fund

Through the creation of the Student Access and Equity Fund (SAEF), Penn State hopes to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion within its student community. The fund would provide financial support to students from underrepresented communities who face unexpected financial need or need help affording educational expenses not covered through financial aid.

Voting will end on Friday, November 13. The winner will be revealed through a virtual livestream later this fall.

When you get the chance, remember to do your part and vote. In doing so, you’ll continue a tradition born in 1861 and help leave Penn State a better place than you found it.
