Senior Signature is a special campaign of the Georgia Fund which gives graduating seniors an opportunity to make a difference by supporting the University of Georgia. Many times, this is a student's first gift and first step towards a lifetime tradition of alumni giving to the university. The impact of this private support makes a difference for students every day. In recognition of your gift, your name will be placed on the Class of 2015 plaque.
You can even designate your gift to go towards your school or college, or perhaps a specific department, program, or scholarship that has made a significant impact on you during your time at UGA!
The Senior Signature plaques are located in the heart of campus on the walls of Tate Plaza. They will forever remain in this location nearby notable campus landmarks such as the Tate Student Center, Miller Learning Center, and Sanford Stadium.
In appreciation for this gift, Senior Signature contributors will receive
special recognition, including:
• Your name engraved on the Class of 2015 plaque, located on display at
Tate Plaza. Imagine coming back to campus years from
now and pointing out your name to friends and family!
• Your name displayed online on the Senior Signature virtual plaque. See who has
already donated and made their mark on UGA.
• Senior Signature donors also become a part of the Student Alumni Association and
are included in its programs and activities such as Dinner with a Dozen Dawgs and
BEAT shirt giveaways.
