Senior Class Gift



Armstrong/Douglas Walkway

Congratulations, Seniors! As you go through your final semester at Coe, you likely have mixed feelings of excitement, nervousness and anticipation. As you prepare to become Coe College alumni, it’s time to celebrate all your achievements and remember the countless alumni who, for decades, have supported Coe. It has been a tradition at Coe for graduating seniors to bestow a gift upon the college.  #LeaveYourMark

Challenge from A Very Special Person

As is true in so many ways at Coe, you are not alone in raising this money. In order to help your class raise the most funds possible, Doug Peters ’81, Equipment Manager has stepped up once again to offer a matching challenge.

Thanks to Dougie's generosity, your donation, no matter how large or small, will be multiplied for the benefit of Coe, in honor of your graduating class!
