"To provide seniors with the opportunity to make their first financial gift to the University, instill a greater appreciation for the philanthropic spirit and raise awareness about the impact of private giving."
The Senior Class Gift program at Penn State started with the Class of 1861. At their reunion in 1890, those 11 graduates gave a portrait of Evan Pugh, the University's first president, which still hangs in the lobby of Old Main today.
Nearly every graduating class since has shown their love for Penn State by making a collective gift to the University. Whether they are physical gifts that become campus landmarks, like the Lion Shrine and the Allen Street Gates, or they are scholarships and endowments that continue to support student life, seniors "pay it forward" and take their first steps in becoming proud alumni.
