Slideshow: Senior Class Gift Campaign Kick-Off Reception


About 150 members of the Class of 2012 attended an event at Watson Arena during which they were issued a special challenge: to help others as they’ve been helped, by making their first contribution to the Alumni Fund before the fiscal year ends June 30.
