Hey Class of 2013, remember when you voted the handsome devil David Shor ’13, featured above, as your Class President? This week, he’s writing in to remind you to pick up your Senior Pass and consider making a contribution to SWAG, the Seniors of Wesleyan Annual Gift. Seniors should remember that the Senior Gift contributes to a financial aid scholarship that will be awarded to an incoming Wesleyan freshman next year. The Class of 2013 has a goal of 92% participation and $15,000 raised. Here’s the important info, worded far more coherently than his initial write-up:
Senior events are a tremendous opportunity to enjoy the company of your entire class, from your best friend to your freshman year hallmate who always bumped the best jams. They are a chance to truly enhance the memories of senior year that you will cherish for years to come after graduation. Don’t miss out on these great events. You will regret it. More information about the passes, their sale, and the Senior Gift after the jump.
Passes will be on sale all this week during lunch, from roughly 12 to 1 p.m., and during the evening from 8 to 9 p.m. in Olin. Shor ’13 makes special mention that passes will not be sold on Friday night “because it’s Fall Break, and that would be ridiculous.” Full passes include 5 events (2 in the Fall, November 9th and December 3rd, and 3 in the Spring) and cost $150, while half passes include 3 events (Winter Formal, Senior Outing during Senior Week, and Semi-Formal during Senior Week) and cost $100. You can pay with cash, check, or student account. There will be a limited number of individual passes and guest passes, so we encourage students to take advantage of the different passes. Individual tickets will be priced between $40 and $50. The food is going to be “THE DANKEST,” and the surprises will be a blast.
The Senior Gift provides graduating seniors with the opportunity to provide a future Wesleyan student with a financial aid scholarship to attend one of the finest institutions of higher education in the country. Gifts can be made with your Senior Pass purchase by check, cash, or student account. After that, gifts can be made online (give.wesleyan.edu). Students can also donate an hour or more of your work paycheck directly to the SWAG scholarship. Seniors who make a gift of $100 or more will be included in Wesleyan’s Leadership Giving Society, the GOLD Donor Associates. Membership includes invitations to donor receptions and networking events. Gifts can be made in monthly installments throughout the year. Contact Melody Oliphant ’13 (moliphant@wes) or Stephanie McQueen (smcqueen@wes) with any questions about gifts to SWAG.
