UC Seniors (aka Senior Class Officers)

The Senior Class Officers (SCOs) work with the University of Cincinnati Foundation & Alumni Association to educate the UC senior student body about the impact that private support has had on their educational experiences and encourage students to provide financial support to the University’s colleges and programs.  Every year the SCOs select a fundraising initiative to support. By taking part in this initiative, you are taking the first step in joining the long tradition of Alumni giving.

About the Senior Class Gift Campaign

The 2017-2018 University of Cincinnati’s Senior Class Officers (SCOs) are proud to announce that the theme for this year’s campaign is “Support UC Wherever You Are.”  The officers are asking that every graduating senior give at least $20.18 to the college, department, program, sport, or activity of their choice.  Remember we are all OneUC!
To enhance the overall senior experiences, the SCOs have crafted three levels of participation –see below.

Senior Class Gift FAQs

Who does this involve?
YOU! We are asking all UC Seniors to consider giving.

What is this even about?
Every year since the 1960s, a new board of Senior Class Officers are selected to lead the campaign and decide where they would like to send the donations that are raised.

Where will the donations go?
The 2017-2018 University of Cincinnati’s Senior Class Officers (SCOs) are proud to announce that the theme for this year’s campaign is “Support UC Wherever You Are.”  The officers are asking that every graduating senior give at least $20.18 to the college, department, program, sport, or activity of their choice.

When can I give a gift if I’m interested?
NOW! No matter if you’re graduating in the fall or the spring, now is the time to give! The campaign is now open for donations and will remain open until June 30, 2018.

WHY?!
It’s tradition! You might be thinking, “Why would I give a donation when I am still paying tuition and student loans?” Our answer is that every donation that we receive helps to increase the value of your diploma. So, make your diploma worth more by making your first alumni donation. Many of UC’s alumni participated in this initiative when they were seniors, and the greater support we give our alma mater, the better our world-class facilities, programs and reputation become.

How does this process all work?
Participation is KEY! Our goal this year is to have 400 seniors to start their tradition of alumni giving – this is almost 10% of our graduating class! So GIVE NOW!

You do not need to make your donation in one lump sum. We are all college students and probably don’t have $100 laying around your room. You will have the ability to split up your donation and spread out your payments so that your wallet doesn’t take a huge dip all at once! If you want to spread your gift over multiple designations or spread out your payments, please call 513-556-6781.
