Why give to the Senior Class Gift? There are many reasons! 

The Senior Class Gift: 

  • Has benefitted your Villanova experience through the support raised by previous senior classes.
  • Allows you to have the special opportunity to ensure that future students can create their own unique experiences.
  • Helped you discover your passion and meet some of your closest friends through participating in or watching one of our athletic teams, or participating in our 200+ student organizations, clubs and activities.
  • Offers the opportunity to give back to the program or area of campus that is most meaningful to YOU!

Why I Support the Senior Class Gift 

Jacalyn Reed ‘15

"I was motivated to donate to Senior Class Gift because I wanted to give back to the university that has given me so much. As a young adult, it was important for me to find a philanthropic cause that I was passionate about, and one that I could support. The Senior Class Gift program was a great way for me to begin my own philanthropy by giving back to an area on campus. Being involved in this program as an Executive Committee member has further engaged me with my peers as well as the university. The Senior Class Gift is helping me to transition from student to alumna, and to remain connected in the Villanova community for years to come." - Jacalyn Reed ‘15

"I chose to sit on the Senior Class Gift Committee because I believe that the generous donations made by the students and alumni of Villanova truly benefit the entire student body. As a junior, I've seen so many positive changes happen because of these donations, and I wanted to help facilitate even more improvements on campus. Through Senior Class Gift Committee, I've gained another perspective of Villanova, and appreciate this community even more." - Elliot Williams ‘16
