Senior Class Gift Q&A

Questions and Answers

What is the Senior Class Gift?

Each senior class raises money and leaves Cal Poly a better place for future students. Past gifts have included bicycle racks, trees planted on campus and other projects. For 2017, the senior gift will go directly to students’ emergency needs  through the Cal Poly Cares program.  Some students are in need of food, clothes, medicine, housing, school supplies, graduation supplies and more to attend Cal Poly and to graduate.  Your gift will help these current and future students be successful.

Why should I give to the Senior Class Gift Campaign?

Your gift demonstrates your support and appreciation for your time and education at Cal Poly. Leave your legacy for future students. Your gift − no matter how large or small − is important to the students who will be following in your footsteps in the next few years.
