Graduating seniors may choose to participate in the Senior Class Gift tradition by making an individual gift of $50. When you designate $20 to Senior Signature and $30 to Terry College, you earn these distinctions:
- Your name is etched on your class year's Senior Class Plaque in Tate Plaza.
- You are recognized on the Terry College Honor Roll in the next edition of Terry Magazine, which circulates to more than 55,000 alumni worldwide.
- You receive a Terry Class Donor pin to wear with your regalia at the Terry Graduation Convocation.
- You are granted membership to UGA's Student Alumni Association.
Student Alumni Association
Throughout the year, UGA Student Alumni Association members engage in special programs, events, and unique opportunities that enhance their college experience. Being a part of SAA is a great way to learn about UGA, connect with the broad alumni base, and support Terry College. Students who participate in the class gift receive an “I Met the Challenge” t-shirt and are invited to other exclusive opportunities.
All UGA students are eligible to join the Student Alumni Association, not just seniors!
As a stepping stone into your role as an alum, we encourage seniors to participate in a pledge program. Giving back to Terry College not only creates opportunities for future students, it strengthens your degree through the resources we are able to offer. Ease into the giving process by participating in a pledge program with your fellow classmates!
MAcc Class Gift
In the Master of Accountancy Program, it is a long-standing tradition that students participate in the annual class gift, pledging to give back to the program incrementally during the first five years after graduation. The strong legacy of the MAcc class gift continues to build with each year, strengthening the program and increasingly bringing prominence to the Tull School of Accounting.
MBA Class Gift
Each year, MBA students make a collective gift to the program that is training them to be effective business leaders. Students pledge or make a one time gift that goes directly to their program of choice, either the Full-Time MBA or Professional MBA Program. Donations raised through these gifts help to ensure that next year’s class is fully equipped to succeed when they come through our MBA Programs.
ILA Class Gift
ILA students have celebrated 100% participation in their class gift each year, which includes both pledges over time and lump sum donations. A gift to ILA creates opportunities for students to experience enhanced leadership development programs. As a specialty program external from any single academic department, the majority of ILA support comes through individual givers — students, alumni, parents, and community partners.
