2015 Graduate Class Gift Program:

A tradition of giving back

The Graduate Class Gift Program recognizes the generosity of graduating students at the associate, bachelor, master’s and doctoral levels as they give back to the University in support of current and future students. The mission of this long-standing tradition is to provide students an opportunity to start their legacy of giving to the University. This gift is one way students can demonstrate their pride in becoming a River graduate and recognize their transition from student to a member of the University’s Alumni Association. 

The Graduate Class Gift Program is comprised of: WeAreRivUnited 

Senior Class Challenge
The Senior Class Challenge program is designed for the graduating senior class of undergraduate students and is designed to create a philanthropic spirit among students. The current graduating class is challenged to secure a higher participation rate than the previous year’s graduating class. The program is coordinated by the Office of University Advancement and Alumni Relations in partnership with the Senior Class Challenge Leaders, who work to communicate the program to their classmates and generate enthusiasm and support. Seniors are asked to make a gift of $20.15 in honor of their graduation year and the Senior Class gift is directed to a project selected by the senior class. The Senior Class gift is recognized at the Senior Send Off event on May 5, 2015. 

Professional Studies, Graduate, and Doctoral Students
The University’s graduate class giving program for adult learners provides an opportunity for working professionals to make their first gift to the University or for those earning an additional degree to continue their support in honor of their most recent degree. Participation in this initiative signifies an appreciation of the professional development and career advancement opportunities made possible for students by their Rivier education. Gifts are directed to the Rivier University Fund to support current and future Rivier students through financial aid and scholarship support.
  

GoldChordRecognizing a united spirit!
All graduating students who support the Graduate Class Gift program will receive a recognition cord to wear with academic attire at Commencement on May 9, 2015. The cord symbolizes the united spirit of the graduating class and is a sign of their support of Rivier University and the education they received. Students who made a donation to the Graduate Class Gift program receive their cord either in person or by mail, prior to the Commencement ceremony.
