2008 Class Gift

As of May 2, 2008 we have raised $5,476 of our $11,000 goal.

Why Donate to the Class Gift?

Here's why some of your classmates gave:

  • “Few people outside of Chicago-Kent currently know about the school or where it is. Signage will enhance Kent's reputation, benefiting students past, present, and future!”

  • “I enjoyed my experience here and am donating as sign of appreciation for my opportunity to learn from great professors and fellow students.”

  • “I care about Kent's reputation. What better way to show your support then to give Kent a facelift.”

  • "I think it is important that we leave a little bit of ourselves at this school when we leave…We are a fantastic school, in fact, one of the best in the city, and people need to know this. By starting to turn the West Loop into the "Chicago-Kent Campus area" we gain recognition, reputation, and will become a permanent institution and a recognized place of higher learning.”
