Meet Grace Rudder ’16

As a graduating senior, the idea of getting a commemorative medallion seemed like a no brainer. The idea of giving back has been instilled in me since the day I arrived on Auburn’s campus, and this is the perfect way to start my giving-back as an Auburn Alum. The medallion will not only serve as an amazing symbol to wear with my cap and gown on graduation day, but also as a reminder of how important it is to give back to the university that gave me so much over the course of these four short years.

When you decide to give, you are able to pin-point the group, department or school that you would like your money to go to directly. I decided to donate my $20.16 to the Center for Leadership and Ethics in the Division of Student Affairs because this group had such a huge impact on my college experience and I know that my money will be used to have the same impact on a student like me in years to come. It feels so great to know that before I even walk across the stage on May 7th I will have begun the process of giving back to Auburn even the tiniest fraction of all that it has given me.

Make your first gift to Auburn University and show your pride by wearing a Commemorative Medallion at the May 2016 graduation.
