Congratulations to the Class of 2017 on all of your extraordinary accomplishments, and welcome to the LIU Brooklyn alumni family! Ever hear the phrase “Membership has its privileges?” Well, it’s true. As an LIU Brooklyn graduate you have exclusive access to a wide variety of alumni benefits including privileges to the campus library, discounts and services. As a member of the Alumni Association you are also invited to alumni events where there are opportunities for networking, professional development and fun.
Senior Class Giving
Each year, the senior class comes together to support LIU and a future student by making a gift to the university. Your gift will help another student realize their dreams at LIU—The Class of 2017 Scholarship Fund will provide a scholarship for an incoming freshman student in 2017.
Why should I give?
The Class Gift is your first opportunity as a soon-to-be LIU graduate to participate in a long legacy of alumni support and to do your part to strengthen the value of a LIU degree. We all benefit from the support of alumni who came before us. Alumni participation, at any level, has a powerful impact on the reputation of our school, and helps to improve our US News and World Report Rankings.
Tradition: The Class Gift Cord
Members of the senior class who support the Class of 2017 Gift will be recognized for their generosity at Commencement! By making a gift of $20.17, you will receive a special honor cord to wear at Commencement to symbolize your gift to future Blackbirds. You will help ensure that an incoming LIU student will be given the opportunity to enjoy the same rewarding and enriching education that you received.
Family and friends may also leave a tribute contribution to honor a graduate. You may make gifts online by visiting www.liu.edu/donate or by mailing a check payable to “Long Island University” to LIU Alumni, 1 University Plaza, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
Wherever your journey takes you, the Office of Alumni Relations would like to celebrate your milestones. Be sure to visit www.liu.edu/alumni to let us know what is happening with you.
