CLASS ACT! Giving Continues to Raise the ‘Bar’
For the fourth straight year, 3Ls at the College of Law have led the entire University in Class Act!, the senior class giving campaign.
Class Act! encourages seniors at the University to give a symbolic gift of $20 plus their class year in cents—for the Class of 2019 that was $20.19. The goals are to usher in a lifetime of philanthropy as our students become alumni and to make the College one of their philanthropic priorities—and to try to break the giving record!
Headed by J.D. Class President Brian Kim L’19 and LL.M. student representatives Aili Obandja LL.M. ’19 and Yasmeen Eesa LL.M. ’19—each of whom are interviewed in our “Giving Through the Years” feature—the Class of 2019 achieved an 80% participation rate in the campaign among J.D. students and a 94% participation rate among the master’s degree students.
Once again, this is a new record not only for the College of Law, but for the University at large.
The Class of 2020’s campaign is well underway, with strong student support during Boost the ’Cuse and plenty of enthusiasm for another banner year.
