By Vaishali Ravi ‘15, Senior Class Representative
I am sure I am not alone in feeling as if it were just last week that I walked through the front doors of Denison and came out to celebrate matriculation. As we prepare for commencement, it is important to reflect on our development over these past few years. We are not the same women as three years ago. We have only gone up, growing both intellectually and personally, building life-long relationships and making names for ourselves. Many of us would not be here, preparing our forms for commencement and registering for classes for the last time.
There are some students in years below us who may not be able to continue at Scripps due to changing financial circumstances and missing support. We can gift one of these students the opportunity to develop more friendships, take those upper division electives with your favorite professors, go to Naked Brunch and walk out of the front doors of Dennison. Senior Class Gift is a long-held tradition of the graduating class supporting one of our peers with the same gift we are soon to receive: completing a Scripps education. You can make this possible by making a gift online designated to the Senior Class Gift at www.applyweb.com/public/ contribute?s=scrippsc.
In order to fully support our peer, we must reach $10,000. Thanks in large part to our wonderful parents of the class of 2015, we are halfway there, but a gift from every single senior will help us fulfill this goal and keep a fellow student’s dreams alive. Thus, I urge you, class of 2015, to gift your time or treasure, in providing this scholarship. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact myself or my co-rep, Sarah Owens, at vaishali.ravi@scrippscollege. edu or firstname.lastname@example.org.
