Four years of studying in the perfect spot in the library and being the forerunners on redefining campus organizations, the University of Mount Union class of 2018 has left their legacy on campus. But now, the soon-to-be graduating seniors have one last legacy to leave; their class gift.
Each year, the senior class comes together and decides on several ideas for their class gift. This year, the class of 2018 will be leaving a Mount Union ‘script’ sign on campus. The idea came to life through the work of the Senior Class Officers which include President Emma Wilson and Officers Morgan Chapman, Shelby Gerwin, Jenna Link, Brandon Lucas and Abby Packard. They worked together with Candice Monteith from the Office of University Advancement and Anne Schultz from the Office of Alumni Relations and University Activates.
On Thursday, November 30 Monteith and Schultz presented in front of President’s Council which has all of the Vice Presidents on campus. They approved of the idea and now the Council is looking to finalize a location to officially place the Mount Union sign.
Now that the gift is approved, it is up to the senior class to donate their $150 class deposit. This deposit will go towards the class gift, the senior class quarter-zip and a brick by the sign.

“I love how unique our senior class gift is!” Says Emma Wilson. “Not only does it give our class something tangible to come back and take pictures with, but it’s a fantastic marketing opportunity for the University.”
