…until graduation

Congratulations Class of 2017! It’s your Senior year!

Each year, Brenau’s Senior Class makes a gift to the university. It’s a way for the senior class to leave a lasting mark on our campus. By participating, you help Brenau in rankings such as those published by U.S. News & World Report rankings. Alumnae participation leads to higher rankings, which adds to the value of your degree.

Help start a new tradition this year – the Senior Signature plaque. Seniors, for a gift to the scholarship fund, your name will be placed on a lasting plaque to be placed on campus for all to see.

Current plans are for the plaque to be available by graduation so you can get that special photo in your cap and gown next to the plaque.

It’s easy to get your name on the plaque – simply make a gift by December 9. Residential students can even designate all or a portion of your residence hall damage deposit so you don’t need extra money or a credit card.

Senior donors also receive a special lapel pin that will be distributed at graduation.

How much should I give?

A minimum of $20.17 is required to be included on the plaque, however, there are three giving levels:

  • $100+ gift – large size name on the plaque
  • $50 to $99 gift – medium size name on the plaque
  • $20.17 to $49 – small size name on the plaque

The entire amount you wish to donate must be pledged using the damage deposit OR paid via cash, check or credit card by December 9, 2016.

What is the Senior Class Gift Pin?

Each Senior who makes a gift to this project will receive a commemorative pin featuring Brenau’s historic fountain. This pin – to be distributed at graduation – may be worn on your graduation gown. You’ll also be able to enjoy the pin as a proud Brenau alumna!
