Class Gift

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are students asked to make a gift to the university?

What would Ohio State be like without all the previous Class Gifts, including Orton Hall Chimes, the Long Walk, and Mirror Lake? Each Class Gift enables a graduating class to leave a lasting legacy of their time at the university and support students on campus by improving the quality of the Ohio State experience for future Buckeyes.

What was the 2010-2011 Class Gift?

The Cunz Hall Rain Garden was the 2010-2011 Class Gift. Located on the lawn circle in the RPAC drop-off drive, the rain garden diverts storm water from the driveway pavement to filter and recharge the ground water. Funds will enhance plantings, provide an informational plaque, and fund three years of maintenance for this unique landscape feature.

What was the Class Gift for 2012?

In 2012, we adopted a giving model similar to the university's Campus Campaign. Graduating students were asked to support the area of the university that has meant the most to them, like scholarships, colleges, offices, departments, programs, athletics, or student life.
