Senior Class Giving

Class of 2023

Graduating students can pay it forward to current and future Blazers! There is a long-standing tradition of a Senior Class Gift to Hood. Every year, members of the senior class make a meaningful gift, which is an opportunity to reflect on their time here and all of the opportunities they have been given.

Seniors who make a gift of ANY size will receive a commemorative pin to wear at Commencement. Seniors who make a gift of $20.23 will receive a commemorative pin to wear at Commencement, free admission to Blazers of the Last Decades Happy Hour, and five raffle tickets at the event.
