The Student Programs in the Annual Fund give current students the opportunity to help raise support for Lafayette and to educate students about giving back to the College. Our student programs allow students to become a connection for Lafayette alumni back to the College. These connections allow students to put names and faces to the many gifts that subsidize their education and their Lafayette experience. Every gift to Lafayette has an immediate impact on the lives of the current students.

If you have any general questions about Annual Fund student programs, please contact Chris Katsifis at (610) 330-3158 or

Senior Class Gift

Each year, the graduating class presents a gift to the College during the commencement ceremony. Each senior class picks an area on campus that will be the fundraising priority. A select group of seniors is chosen as part of the Senior Class Gift Committee. Student participation in giving—no matter how large or small the gift—is the focus of every Commencement Gift campaign.
