The Senior Class Fund is the senior’s gift to Vanderbilt—and it’s their way of saying “thank you” for the education and memories they take with them. It helps provide others with the same opportunities they have had. They are part of the great Vanderbilt tradition of giving back. Currently, over 14% of the class has given!
