Senior Gift Society.

 

Senior Gift Society

The Tradition Continues.

Established in 1983, the Senior Gift Society recognizes donors who in their senior year make a donation to the University to support the next generation of Drew students. The campaign is organized by members of the Student Alumni Association, who host exclusive senior events to fundraise for their class gift. Senior Gift Society members are a special group of donors who recognize the impact of alumni support throughout their years as a student and are helping shape Drew's future as they transition into alumni.
