Impact of Your Gift
The Class of 2019 has chosen to sponsor Navigating Rensselaer and Beyond grants for incoming students as their senior class gift. The class would like to leave their legacy on campus by directly welcoming the newest generation of Rensselaer students with an experience that they will carry with them through their own senior year.
Navigating Rensselaer and Beyond provides opportunities for incoming first-year students to meet their classmates and bond through different overnight trips around the region. With the support of our class, many students who are unable to cover the out-of-pocket cost of these trips will be able to experience this fun and enjoyable opportunity as they begin their undergraduate career.
Why Support This Project?
With your donation, you can help encourage incoming students to broaden their horizons and experience the Rensselaer community and beyond with their future peers. When you support the Class of 2019 Senior Class Gift, you’re not just leaving your own legacy on campus. You are also joining the family of Rensselaer alumni who have made a powerful and immediate impact on the lives of students and future graduates.
Seniors who contribute $100 or more will become members of the prestigious Annual Patroon Society at Rensselaer, and will receive invitations to exclusive events and special communications from the Institute.
