The Class of 2007 exceeded its original goal of $50,000 by 24 percent. To date, the senior class has received commitments from more than 1,650 students, parents and friends.
“This is, by far, the most money raised by a graduating class,” UD President David P. Roselle announced, noting that the senior class gift has become a tradition as a way to raise awareness of the importance of giving back to the University and in providing an opportunity for each class to leave behind a legacy. The previous record gift had been $56,500, from the Class of 2006.
Amanda Conforto, chairperson of the senior class gift committee, presented Roselle with the gift on behalf of the Class of 2007.
