...a student organization comprised of seniors from the graduating class. The Senior Challenge Committee is responsible for the senior class gift to the university as well as the sponsored events and outings.
Over the past several years Senior Challenge has evolved into an organization with an agenda of passing on gifts of opportunity. These gifts come in the form of scholarships. This year, the committee is asking every member of the senior class to show their spirit and commitment to their soon to be alma matter by contributing $20.16 to this cause. Individually, a scholarship gift of $20.16 seems insignificant, but collectively our class gift can support many of our gifted classmates.
At many schools, the senior class gift is considered the last chance for seniors to show their school spirit before surrendering their “student” status for “alumni.” Marquette’s Senior Challenge is no exception! If every senior at Marquette contributed to the class gift at the suggested amount of $20.16, collectively we could give a gift of more than $25,000 for scholarships to those students in need.
Seniors are encouraged to choose a cause that is closely aligned to their heart. If there is not specific group, organization or department you wish to support, the Senior Challenge committee suggests supporting the Scholars Fund- a scholarship fund that provides immediate impact on the lives of our fellow classmates.
