Senior Class Gift
When Charles Watson established AUC in 1919, he envisioned a University where students, whether on campus or in their communities, would learn the value of initiative and leadership. Nearly 100 years later, students across campus continue to work toward Watson's goal, whether by leading clubs and organizations, engaging in research or working to support the University.
Over the past years, AUC classes have united to give back to the University. By supporting your Senior Class Gift, you are demonstrating your gratitude for AUC and your devotion to support future AUCians.
As a student, you understand the value of your degree from AUC. The liberal arts education system has equipped you with the skills needed to excel in whatever career you wish to pursue, to rise to any challenges you may face, to think critically and to solve problems creatively. This is what distinguishes you as an “AUCian.”
The tuition paid by each student at AUC only covers 60 percent of the actual cost of educating that student and the rest comes from other sources, including gifts. Thus your gift helps students enjoy the gift of education, it supports AUC’s diverse community and, consequently, its standing as one of the top universities in Egypt and worldwide.
On an annual basis, an awareness campaign is organized by annual fund team to introduce graduating seniors to the services offered after graduation such as the Alumni ID, the graduation ring. They are also introduced to the importance of the Senior Class Gift and how participation is important in improving the rank of their class.
Regardless of how much you give, your contribution to the University has an impact on students’ lives by:
- Providing scholarships and financial assistance to deserving students who might not otherwise have the same opportunity to come to AUC
- Supporting the library, the main resource of information on which you depended throughout your course of study at AUC
- Allowing AUC to recruit outstanding faculty members, conduct groundbreaking research and maintain its state-of-the-art facilities to provide students with the kind of education and experience they deserve
An AUC education has helped thousands of alumni succeed, and you are soon to become one of them! To make a contribution to your Senior Class Gift, call 2615.2382 or send an email to email@example.com.
