Senior Class Gift

​​​​The tradition of the senior class gift at JU swells from a culture of service and giving back that has become ingrained in our Dolphin DNA. The class gift gives soon-to-be alumni a chance to unite one last time as students to give back to the University that gave them so much, and to leave their mark on campus to represent their class for future generations.

The 2018 class gift will be supporting the education of future Dolphins through the JU Scholarship Fund. If graduating seniors choose to give a monthly recurring gift of $20.18 or more, they will automatically become a member of the GOLD Phin Society upon graduation.


You've likely seen many class gifts around campus without even knowing it - including the green and gold JU sculpture in the Green Street roundabout in front of Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences Building (c/o 2011) and some of our Brita Hydration Stations around campus (c/o 2015). Other classes have chosen to give back through gifts to their successors, through the Scholarship Fund or the Nellie Student Support Fund.

The class of 2017 did just that - they directed their gifts to students at JU who truly need them by supporting the Nellie Student Support Fund. This fund assists current JU students by providing financial support when they need assistance with unexpected emergency expenses.

When making their class gift, students are encouraged to give their class year - so this year will be $20.18! Gifts can be made in honor of a student's favorite professor or coach, and parents are able to give in honor of their students as well.

Contact Jena Crews, annual giving coordinator, at or (904) 256-7995 for more information or to contribute to your class gift.
