Adelphi Students Give Back


Each year, the Senior Legacy Campaign is an opportunity for graduating seniors to contribute to a class gift and begin an Adelphi tradition of alumni giving.

More than 600 members of the Class of 2015 have committed to support the Senior Legacy Campaign, raising $10,000. The Class of 2015 is on pace to have the most donors participate and raise the most money in the Senior Legacy Campaign program’s history.

One member of the Class of 2015 is helping to motivate her classmates to get involved and give back. If 500 members of the senior class make a contribution to Adelphi by May 21, 2015, this donor has generously offered to make a gift of $2,015 in honor of their graduation year.

To thank those students who have shown their support, for one day only Adelphi transformed the University Center lobby into the “Senior Legacy Lounge.” Students were invited to join their fellow classmates and donors for an afternoon of food, video games, air hockey, a photo booth and more in thanks of their generous support.

At Commencement, the final number of donors and money raised will be announced, and will present President Robert A. Scott with the Class of 2015 plaque of contributors.
