Message From the Co-Chairs

Welcome to the Senior Class Gift Campaign Website! We thank you for your interest in the Campaign and for your consideration in donating to the Gettysburg Fund.

It is hard to believe that we are in our final year at Gettysburg College. Though leaving the place that we called home for the past four years will be bittersweet, we have great expectations for the future.

After graduation we will enter a world filled with challenges and opportunities, but our experiences at Gettysburg, both inside and outside of the classroom, have prepared us well for the road ahead. Generous support from the College created experiences that fostered personal and intellectual growth, prepared us for success in any pursuit, and inspired us to live a life of meaningful impact. Our Class benefitted in particular from The Gettysburg Fund, which allows students to have 24-hour access to the library, supports a variety of student activities, provides career development opportunities through practical internships and faculty research, and allows 75% of all students to receive some level of financial aid. Only through the generous support of parents, faculty, staff, friends, alumni, and Seniors can the Gettysburg Fund continue to create the rich experience we have enjoyed.

Our time at Gettysburg has made a lasting impact on each of us. In four unforgettable years we have made lasting friendships, benefitted from invaluable opportunities, and prepared for whatever the future might hold. We challenge you, the Class of 2014, to donate to the Senior Class Gift Campaign and begin your own legacy at Gettysburg College.
