Class of ’17 Campaign

Lisa Yang and Stan Reeder serve up attitude and cupcakes at a tabling event for the Class of ’17 Campaign.

This year’s College of Chemistry Class Campaign raised funds to purchase umbrella tables for the Chemistry Plaza, increasing the area of the college where students can gather to study, eat and relax.

The Class Campaign committee, Stan Reeder, Maureen Morla and Lisa Yang, were leaders from the college’s two main student groups: co-ed fraternity Alpha Chi Sigma (AXE), and the student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). The committee selected the focus for the campaign and set a goal of $4,000, which they easily passed, raising $4,600.

The Class Campaign was started in 2009 as a way for students to give back to the college before graduating and to leave something of lasting value for classes to come. Previous campaigns have focused on renovating the undergraduate labs in Latimer Hall and updating the undergraduate curriculum to include greener lab practices.
