Class of 2014 Legacy Project
Your final days on campus are fast approaching and what better way to commemorate your years at Brescia than leaving behind a legacy? The Class of 2014 Legacy Project is an initiative that looks to create a way for graduating students to be recognized beyond their years at Brescia University College.
The goal is to raise funds by your final graduation day on June 16, 2014. Depending on how much is raised, the Class of 2014 could direct their donations to a plant a tree, or to help furnish a new residence room, or to another area of the University that is important to the Class. There are three simple ways you can help create that legacy:
- Round-up your Baccalaureate/Magisterial and /or Convocation fee by $5.00 (or choose your own amount) on your registration form above;
- Make a donation online or use the donation form;
- Ask a fellow graduate, friend, or a parent to sponsor your Legacy Project and they can make a donation online or use the donation form.
An update on the Class of 2014 Legacy Project and how much has been raised so far will be presented at the Pre-graduation Reception on April 8, 2014.
