The Senior Legacy program is a student–driven campaign that educates seniors about the importance of philanthropic support of Northeastern, and engages them as donors to the university through a Senior Legacy gift. A committee of senior students oversees all aspects of the campaign – from event planning to recruiting volunteers and soliciting gifts – starting with the return of students to campus in September. The Senior Legacy campaign closes with an amazing gala event during Senior Week and the presentation of the class gift to President Aoun at commencement. Last year more than 70% of the senior class invested in Northeastern with a Senior Legacy gift.
