Senior Class Challenge

The Senior Class Challenge is a fundraising initiative that was created to give seniors of the current graduating class an opportunity to show their unwavering Monarch pride and leave their lasting legacy after graduation.

By participating in the Senior Class Challenge, our graduating seniors are helping to provide a scholarship to assist students who would not be able to complete their ODU degree due to financial constraints. The gifts will go directly to the ODU Student Concordia Award, an endowed scholarship created by University Advancement.

To give, students will pay $20.XX in honor of their graduation year. As a thank you, each student donor will receive an ODU philanthropy honor cord to wear at commencement as a show of their commitment and support.
