Senior Class


A little bit about the Gift:

Who does this involve?
YOU! All UC Seniors are asked to consider giving a donation.

What is this even about?
Every year since the 1960s, a new board of Senior Class Officers are chosen to lead the campaign and decide where they would like to send the donations that are raised.

Where will the donations go?
This year, your Senior Class Officers have chosen to partner with the Architect’s office to reach our goal to raise $15,000 towards UC signage along Jefferson Avenue. Keep in mind, if you would like to give to another cause or organization, you can specify where you would like your donation to go.

When can I give a gift if I’m interested?
NOW! No matter if you’re graduating in the fall or the spring, now is the time to give! The campaign is now open for donations and will remain open until June 30, 2016.

It’s tradition! You might be thinking, “Why would I give a donation when I am still paying tuition and student loans?” Our answer is that every donation that we receive helps to increase the value of your diploma. So, make your diploma worth more by making your first alumni donation. Many of UC’s alumni participated in this initiative when they were seniors, and the greater support we give our alma mater, the better our world-class facilities, programs and reputation become.

How does this process all work?
Participation is KEY! Our participation goal this year is to get 400-500 students involved. So GIVE NOW!

We also want to make it clear that you do not need to make your donation in one lump sum. We are all college students and probably don’t have $100 laying around your room. You will have the ability to split up your donation and spread out your payments so that your wallet doesn’t take a huge dip all at once!
