Leaving a Legacy

Senior Class Gift As a high school junior or senior, graduating college probably seemed like a lifetime away.  But after the excitement of being admitted, registering for classes, and completing orientation, time flew by with the busyness that college life brings.  Classes, group projects, student organizations, internships, exams, working, and more filled the last four years of your life and turned you into a highly skilled young professional.  

Now you find yourself in your senior year gearing up for graduation, a new job (or grad school!) and a new start.

We are glad you chose UIC Business for your college education. As many of you know, for the second consecutive year UIC Business was ranked the #1 undergraduate business program in the Chicago area.  This is a great achievement by both our students and all the faculty and staff that work to deliver you the best education possible.  It also means you have invested wisely in your degree here! 

Despite the tuition and fees you paid along the way, the cost of your education is still subsidized by generous alumni and friends of the college.  It's with their help that we are able to continually update facilities, introduce new and relevant courses, and provide better student services and career placement to UIC Business students.

The Senior Class Gift Campaign is a new tradition at UIC Business. The goal of this campaign is to promote a philanthropic spirit among the graduating class by providing students an opportunity to start giving to the college. By organizing and financing a campus project or scholarship, UIC Business seniors leave behind a bit of their own personality and take their first steps toward being proud alumni. Together, each senior class can create a legacy of a strong community, proud of the work they have done, and eager to leave something positive behind for the next generation of students.

You made it.  You turned your potential into success. Now join your fellow classmates and UIC Business alumni as we support the next generation of students.

Click here to Give Now.  Make a gift of $20.14 in honor of your graduation year or a gift of any size to be part of the tradition. No matter the size, your gift can help change a student's life and may be the difference between going to college or not.  After following the link, scroll down and make your donation to the Business Alumni Association Scholarship to help a fellow UIC Business student pay for college in the coming year.
