Senior Class Gift

Thank you to the 84 donors who came together to raise over $2,000 in scholarships for a class of 2018 senior!

Check back later for more info on the 2018 Senior Class Gift campaign!

What does it support? 

Each year, approximately 120 students cannot afford to return to OU for their senior year. The 2017 Senior Class Gift will support scholarship opportunities for class of 2018 seniors, so the class of 2017 can leave a legacy for the seniors who follow them! Gifts of any size make a difference to this initiative! 

Who gives to the Senior Class Gift?

The Senior Class Gift is open to all graduating students, not just undergraduates, who are eligible to attend commencement in 2017 (any graduation date). Students from other classes may make a gift to the fund, but will not be eligible for the Elliott Tower Climb.

“When you give, it’s the best thing you can do for yourself. I learned many years ago – and it’s true – that even if you give just a little bit, over time, it adds up.”

— Hugh Elliott
