Welcome to Senior Spring!
We're excited to have everyone back (spring break trips instagrams/snapchats/profile pics look ah-mazing), and we're excited to kick things into high gear in what we like to call the real Senior Spring.
Check below for all things coming up soon this Senior Spring!
Our Newest Challenge:
1000 GIFTS BY MAY 3RD
for $75,000 to Financial Aid
THANK YOU again to the 800+ folks who have already donated to senior gift for helping us reach our goal in the #50by5 challenge.
Building on this momentum, we are excited to announce the second and final challenge of our Senior Gift campaign. Class of 1987 friends Bob Cleary, Mike DeVoe, and Mark Monaco were so inspired by our success in the first challenge and they want to encourage even more seniors to join in supporting the Harvard College community. Collectively, they will give $75,000 to Financial Aid if the Senior Class can reach 1,000 gifts by May 3. Please join us in this class-wide effort and make your senior gift now! Right now, we're just 190 gifts away from reaching our goal.
