Leave your legacy! A contribution to the Senior Gift is a way to celebrate your transition from student to alumni, and to open the door for the future Mavericks. Help us raise $2,100 by May 31, and the Class of 2021 will receive a legacy brick in front of Hudson Hall. If you make a gift of $21 or more in support of the Mav Friendly Market or the Student Emergency Fund, we’ll also send you your very first alumni t-shirt to thank you for giving back.
