The Senior Class Gift promotes a philanthropic spirit among the graduating class, by allowing students an opportunity to leave their legacy at MSU.  The University has educated an inspired our Senior Class and this is our chance to make a statement with the Public Affairs Mission at Missouri State. Through a collective effort, the Senior Class has the opportunity to give both time and financial resources in order to make an impact on the Springfield campus and to take their first step into becoming proud alumni.

This year the Senior Class Gift is a resin, custom designed bear that will be placed in a prominent location on campus. The design is not yet finished, but the commission will be posting updates as the project moves forward.  Any dollar amount above the goal will be donated to the Clif and Gail Smart First Generation Student Scholarship.

Graduating Seniors that make a qualifying gift of $25 or more receive an Active Alumni Member card.
