Senior Eric Thibault, the 2011 Senior Class Gift Coordinator, urges students to give to the fund this season to join a community and help their fellow Colonials.
After paying $50,000 for four years, why should seniors give back to the Senior Class Gift? That’s the underlying question that makes my job challenging, but one that motivates me to help seniors see the value in their gifts.
Surely everyone has had a unique GW experience. Even with ups and downs, there was something that kept us all here for four years. Whether it was your student org, scholarship, fellowship, internship, Greek organization or an academic experience, those opportunities were made possible by a number of members of the GW community. These people are fellow students, parents, faculty, alumni and friends of GW who felt compelled to give back and make our experiences possible. The Senior Class Gift Campaign is our first opportunity to become part of that community.
