As a student-led tradition, the class gift impacts an area of campus that matters most to the graduating class. As their legacy to their alma mater, members of the class of 2015 have provided for the expansion of a popular outdoor gathering space known affectionately as “The Pit.”
Located between Freiburger Residence Hall and Lynn Residence Center, this attractive outdoor fire pit area (shown above) includes seating and a bougainvillea-draped pergola. The class of 2015’s contribution is the third to a compounding gift created by the class of 2006 and enhanced by the class of 2011.
The class of 2015 completed their gift prior to commencement, adding a tree bench and enlarging the space beneath the pergola. Thanks to their generosity, students for generations to come will enjoy this tranquil spot.
