Senior Class Gift
Building on a philanthropic tradition.
Why we ask seniors to give back
The campus and the community you are a part of has been made better by those who came before you. One of the most visible signs of that commitment is the Senior Class Gift. It’s a tradition that makes Monmouth an outstanding institution. Participating in the Senior Class Gift is a chance to look back on the opportunities you have had in your time at Monmouth and to begin building a legacy of commitment that will benefit future students.
The Class of 2021 will be teaming up with Scots Senate to secure gifts for the Scots Care Fund. By selecting this project, the senior class will be helping provide financial support directly to Monmouth College students for issues and expenses that have occurred due to the current climate caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Students helping students!
How can I get involved with the Senior Class Gift?
Your Senior Class Gift is more than a donation — it’s a rite of passage that will help Monmouth and future Scots for years to come. It’s your first chance to support what you love about your alma mater and make a direct impact on and off campus.
Seniors can join the Senior Class Gift Committee by contacting Associate Director of Alumni Engagement Jordan Scherpe-Lencioni.
What is Honor Walk?
The Honor Walk allows graduating seniors to recognize a special person who influenced their time at Monmouth while also contributing to the Senior Class Gift.
The Honor Walk takes place immediately following Baccalaureate. Graduating seniors who contribute $20.21 or more to the senior class gift project are invited to participate.
On the eve of Commencement, each senior who contributed to the Senior Class Gift project receives a talent—a coin with Wallace Hall on one side and the College seal on the other. Before an audience of family members, friends, and classmates, each senior presents the coin to the special person he or she has selected. President Clarence Wyatt and First Lady Lobie Stone acknowledge the graduating senior and talent recipient.
