Senior Class Campaign

What is the Senior Class Campaign?

MSU Senior Class Campaign Graduate

Since 1873, senior Spartans have built their legacy by raising money to support students’ needs. This longstanding tradition empowers seniors to give back to MSU, continuing the university’s history of being truly extraordinary.

It is now easier than ever to be part of the Senior Class Campaign. You’ve spent four years here—maybe more, make a gift supporting your college, unit, student group, or organization that had the biggest impact on your time at MSU.


When you hear the words GO GREEN, you know exactly what to say back. And you say it. Loud.


When you hear the opening notes of the alma mater, you link arms with your fellow Spartans and add your voice to the chorus.


You’re better for your time at MSU, and you can help make sure MSU is better for the Spartans who come next.

Make it better now by making a gift where it matters most to you.


We’re suggesting a gift of $20.17 for May and August graduates to commemorate your graduating class. A donation of any size makes a difference in the lives and experiences of Spartans for generations to come.

“For the Senior Class Campaign, I will be giving to the sales leadership minor. Having programs, such as the sales minor, allows students to get involved and create lasting memories and relationships. Coming to MSU and getting a degree is a great time, but the value really comes from getting involved with additional clubs, organizations and the community. Seniors should contribute to MSU organizations or programs they have an affiliation with because they provide benefits outside of the classroom.” — Austin M. Carr ’17

Philanthropy Cord

By giving at least $50 to your favorite cause during your senior year, you will receive a green and white philanthropy cord to wear during graduation. The green and white cord shows your commitment to and support of Michigan State. Make your gift online, then schedule your philanthropy cord pick up by emailing Danielle Matlick.
