Senior Class Gift 2011

Dear Class of 2011: It’s getting close to graduation and one of our responsibilities as a graduating class is to create and to offer our Senior Gift to the University. It’s our legacy; our thank you for four great years and a promising future. Our gift will fund a BBQ pit behind the Heights. Can you imagine the fun and relaxation a BBQ pit will offer future classes at DSU? We’ll even get to enjoy it when we return for Homecoming year after year.

I personally invite you to support the senior class gift with a gift of $20.11. Not only is that a clever number recognizing our class year, I believe it is one we can all manage. You’ll get a commemorative t-shirt after we receive your gift, but more importantly, you will know that you participated collaboratively with your classmates and left your mark on DeSales.

Bring your gift to lunch on Tuesdays from 11-1 p.m. or e-mail lf2588@desales.edu.

Thank you so much and good luck with the final weeks of your last semester!

–Laura Fehrle
