Graduating ​Class Gift

The Graduating Class Gift program is a student-led campaign to raise money for University of San Diego School of Law. The Graduating Class Gift campaign is a fun and meaningful way for members of the graduating class to celebrate the milestone of earning their law degree, cement their bond as a class and help make USD School of Law a better place for current and future students by supporting a gift they feel will make a difference.

To pursue these goals, a committee of law students has volunteered to help rally support from their classmates. The class gift is meant to show gratitude for their legal education and to assist USD in remaining a competitive, top-tier law school. Above all, it represents the desire to give back and to support students following in their footsteps.

What is the 2018 Class Gift?

The Class of 2018 is raising money to add standing tables to the first floor of the Pardee Legal Research Center.

The goal is to make the Legal Research Center a more friendly and welcoming space for current law students to study in a more social setting within the LRC. The Class of 2018 aspires to raise $1,500 from graduating students and encourages participation from all members of the graduating class. Every gift makes a difference.

When can I make my gift?

Right now! The official fundraising period for the class gift campaign kicked off in February and will continue through the end of the semester. All gifts made by June 30, 2018 will count toward the student lounge renovation.
