Senior Class Gift

Senior Swap: Swap something small now for the future of OCU

As students, our expenses quickly add up and it's easy to feel like we don't have much to give. But imagine if we all skipped just one treat, or one night out, and chose instead to help the students that will come after us.

Swap something small now for the future of OCU

These suggested donation amounts are to get you thinking about what you might give up, just once, to make a lasting difference.

  • Cuppies and Joe coffee: $3.00
  • Capitals Ice Cream: $6.00
  • Cane’s Box Combo: $7.90
  • Uber to Bricktown: $9.00
  • Fuzzy's Tacos: $10.00
  • Netflix subscription: $11.00
  • Pair of student tickets for Harkins: $15.00
  • Cafe Kacao Brunch: $15.00

If you contribute $19 or more (for the Class of '19), you'll receive a special blue and white tassel to wear at graduation!

Our gift, our choice

It's a tradition for graduating students to make a group donation, but each year we choose what we want to support. This year we collected votes through a poll which seniors could take at Gateway to Graduation or through their email. The clear winner, receiving 47% of all votes, was our University's General Scholarship Fund.

Ways to give

You can contribute to our class gift with cash, a check, a debit or credit card, or even your StarsCash! You can safely give online through this form or in person in the office of University Advancement. StarsCash will be accepted in the OCU Mailroom starting in late April. We will also accept donations at Senior Sendoff on May 2.

Thank you

We are grateful for each donor for giving back so that our university can move forward. Special thanks to our volunteers, especially the committee leadership for 2018-19: Trae Trousdale and Savannah Michalek.
