It seems like only yesterday that we were going through freshmen orientation. Now that our college careers are drawing to a close, the time has come to graduate, and interview for jobs. The leadership positions that we once held will be passed on to other up-and-coming students. As seniors, we cannot believe how fast our time here has passed.
This is our final trek around campus. Soon, our times spent in the halls of Central Michigan University will be only the fondest of memories. We will remember countless hours spent in the library, and the gallons upon gallons of coffee we had just to make it through that last final exam. We will remember long walks with our friends through campus, or visiting our favorite professor's office in between classes for a quick chat. We will remember how we grew as students, as friends, and as accomplished individuals.
Now YOU can help a future student make the very same memories! Last year, seniors pledged over $5,500, and created eleven $500 scholarships. Now, it's our turn! This year, we have been challenged to raise $13,750.
Each and every donation counts! Every senior who contributes to the Making Our Mark campaign will be recognized in an upcoming issue of Centralight, the alumni magazine.
As a special thank you, those who contribute $30 or more will be recognized with a personalized brick, which will be placed in front of Warriner Hall. This is truly a unique opportunity to create a special place to come back and remember our time on campus.
Please take a moment to contribute using our online gift form. The Scholarship Application is also available online.
Also, please join our Facebook Group for a chance to win a 16GB iPad (First Generation)! No purchase is necessary.
