The Senior Class Gift Challenge begins Monday as Ohio University’s students compete with Miami University in a challenge to motivate seniors to give a gift to their alma mater.
This challenge is unique in that this year, seniors have the ability to donate to any area of campus that means the most to them, whether that be their school, college, campus life organization, etc.
“Seniors have the chance to really show Ohio University how much they appreciate everything that they have experienced while here,” says Jessica Storm, assistant director of Annual Giving. “Students are encouraged to give any amount, whether that’s one dollar or 20 dollars, every gift matters.”
The challenge winner will be decided based upon the percentage of seniors who donate to any area of their University between January 24 and April 29.
Students will be able to donate in-person beginning Monday outside of Baker between the hours of 11 a.m.- 2 p.m, and will continue through Friday, April 22. Those students who give at least $20.11 will receive a T shirt, donated by campaign sponsor College Bookstore, and will be entered into a raffle to win a Deal of the Day, courtesy of Kegfly.
Philanthropy is important to the future of Ohio University. Gifts can help award scholarships and internships to students, attract talented and bright-minded professors and professionals to the University’s classrooms, help maintain a high ranking among the nation’s top public universities, and help sustain departments and programs on campus.
Sponsors for this campaign include College Bookstore and Kegfly.
