SCG AnnouncementMembers of the Class of 2017 showed their love for Mary Washington by giving back to, what is now, their alma mater. In total, 139 graduating seniors gave more than $7,000 to support various initiatives across the University. News of the total amount raised for the traditional Senior Class Gift was met with cheers when it was announced at Commencement rehearsal.
