Around Cal

Berkeley Magazine, Fall 1998


In a show of affection for Cal, more than 1,000 members of the graduating Class of 1998 contributed to their senior class gift even before their steady paychecks were assured.

Under the leadership of Shana Chen, a 1998 graduate, and the Senior Gift Committee, the class raised more than $40,000. The class set records in dollars raised and the number of seniors participating.

This continues a relatively new tradition at Berkeley in which the senior class outdoes the previous year's graduating class in raising a gift for the campus. The newest senior class gift will create the Class of 1998 Endowment for University Library Collections. A seminar room in Doe Library also will be named in the graduates' honor.
