Graduating Class Challenge
Since 1994, each UK graduating class has come together to make its permanent mark on campus with a Senior Gift. Those gifts are the large, bronze historical markers you see on campus. Each year, SDC works with the Senior class and the Kentucky Historical Society to raise a marker in honor of the class’s graduation.
Past markers have included:

Graduating Class Challenge Campaign
SDC students contact each graduating Senior, either by phone or in person, to request a small gift to support UK’s Senior Gift tradition. Each gift is important because the markers are funded only through the generosity of each class. We need your help in order to keep this Big Blue tradition alive!
