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 $20.19 for December graduates and $20.20 for May 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.

“I have recently made a donation to the Department of Finance. I hope other students who love finance as much as I do and enjoyed studying it here can benefit from any assistance to the department and major. I hope to be able to continue to assist the department in the future.” — Khadija K. ’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 Alex Dardas.
