Senior class gift

March 16, 2018

As a senior *hopefully* graduating in two months, I want to announce our Class of 2018 senior class gift: new signs. That’s right, new beautiful signs to provide campus cohesion, campus beautification, and you guessed it, the wallets of you and yours. The senior class gift would be impossible without the donations of families, alumni, community members, you, and anyone else who is extremely proud to know a Fighting Scot. Our goal this year is to raise a little over $14,000.

The senior class gift committee will be selling pop sockets the week before Easter Break with a Monmouth College design on the back for $10. We will be hosting, like in years past, Cow Patty Bingo. Cow Patty Bingo is on Scholar’s Day. We are still in the works of the fine details, but a square will be sold for $10, there are 100 squares in the area. Whoever’s square the cow does its business on, will receive a basket of goodies from local businesses. Depending on interest, we will have two rounds with two separate cows, the same thing will happen and there will be a prize for the square winner. If you are interested in learning more about how to purchase a square, please contact myself or Tessa Jones.

Another fundraising venture that we are taking on is our class president, Farida Mohammed will be organizing with Alfano’s and Pepperoni’s to have some of the money raised by pizza purchases during finals week to go back to our senior class gift.

Look forward to social media blasts with the link to donate to our senior class gift. As dry as it may seems to give money to a gift that you might not be particularly interested in, give it some thought. Seniors, we have worked extremely hard to get wherever you are today. In a little under two months, we will be walking across that stage. It does not matter if you’re graduating with honors, what organizations you are apart of or the major you have studied; What matters is that we have made it. Putting a small donation towards something that will represent our class for long to come is really cool. Roll Scots!
