Bradley seniors make a lasting impression

Image of senior class obeliskFor the third year in a row, Bradley seniors plan to leave their mark on campus by supporting the Cullom-Davis Library’s book endowment fund.

The Bradley Ambassadors, Bradley’s student-alumni organization, lead the effort to encourage seniors to give to the fund. Kate Santine ‘05, president of the Bradley Ambassadors, said, “Graduating seniors can donate money to the book endowment fund. In the future, the library will use the interest from the endowment fund to purchase new books as needed every year. Seniors chose the book endowment fund because it helps all future students, regardless of their major.”

The names of seniors who donate will be engraved on an obelisk in the entry way of the library. Additionally, each of the books acquired from the endowment will have a tag inside mentioning which class purchased it.

Shelly Smith MA ‘93, senior director of the Bradley Fund, said, “I think it is wonderful that the Senior Class of 2005 has the opportunity to leave an important legacy on campus. Not only will their gifts improve the library’s collection, but they will enhance the educational experience for future students in perpetuity.”
