2015 Class Gift Kick-Off Party TONIGHT

2015 Class Gift Kick-Off Party Tonight
Join members of the Class of 2015 in the Front Lobby from 5-8 p.m. TONIGHT for the 2015 Class Gift Kick-off party! Drinks and food will be served, and while admission is free, donation to the Class Gift is strongly encouraged.

Funds from this year's Class Gift will go to add outlets/charging stations to high-traffic areas within the school, starting with the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Spak. As soon as the Class of 2015 raises $1,000, Chicago-Kent alumnus John Locallo '86 will kick-in $5,000 to the gift. If this occurs before Winter Break, the outlets/charging stations will be added in time for use this spring.

Thank you to the Class Gift Committee for their hard work, and to Themis for sponsoring the party.
