The Senior Marshals are a select group of graduating seniors who serve as ambassadors for their graduating class. This group raises funds for the senior class gift - something they’d like to give back to the College - and plans several senior events throughout the academic year, including the 100 Nights Countdown Celebration in February. The role of Senior Marshal is a prestigious honor and responsibility, as they serve as their class representatives both during senior year and after graduation.
From years past, Senior Marshals have coordinated fundraising efforts for a variety of class gifts, including:
- Laptops for the Student Affairs Laptop Loaner Program (Class of 2019)
- Smartphone and tablet charging stations in the Commons (Class of 2018)
- Updated couches and furniture in Nugent Hall (Class of 2016)
This year, the Senior Marshals are leading the charge to create a sustainability garden on the Loewre Family Terrace between Carson and Nugent Halls. Please consider donating to help make this a reality!
From new students to alumni, all Griffins can help make a difference for those who follow in future generations. If you’ve received any form of financial assistance from MMC, enjoyed time in the common spaces, or taken advantage of on-campus technology or facilities, chances are you have benefited from the gifts of others. Continue this legacy of philanthropy by supporting the Senior Class Gift today.
