Senior Class Gift
Can the 2018 Senior Gift Make History?
The transition from senior to alum is a rite of passage that all students look forward to. The first step is participating in the Senior Class Gift—a way of "giving back" to any campus organization that impacted the students’ time at the Heights. The Class of 2017 broke records with a participation rate of 87 percent! Each year since 2010 (the first year for the Senior Class Gift), the numbers have risen. Class of ’18, are you up for the challenge? Can you top your predecessors? Let’s amp it up now and make history! Your legacy is on the line.
Why Should I Give?
There are a ton of reasons to give. Here are three big ones:
- To help my class earn an additional $25,000 in honor of the senior class. Our gifts keep BC a top school, increase the value of our degrees, and benefit others.
- To join my classmates in honoring what we love about BC. Now is our chance to pay tribute to that professor, that class, that student activity that changed our lives forever.
- To lead the way for future Eagles. We can help ensure that their experiences at the Heights will be just as great as ours.
Why Do Our Gifts Matter at a Big School Like BC?
Many of us don't realize that tuition doesn't cover all of the BC experience. If you look at the big picture, you'd find that a lot of the stuff that makes BC great—the stellar academics, the student resources, the top-ranked athletics, and the service programs—is only possible through the support of our alumni donors.
Now is our first chance to join them for BC.
"I'm so excited to be a part of the committee as a way to start to give back to the BC community—which has been so great to me—and to encourage my classmates to do the same!"
