February 25, 2013

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State's 2013 Senior Class has voted to commission a sculpture as the Senior Class Gift and launched a national competition to find an artist for the project. The sculpture, to be adjacent to the east side of the Intramural Building, will represent the University's iconic theme "We Are." The words of the Penn State Alma Mater in the original handwriting of Fred Lewis Pattee is to be incorporated into the piece.

Artists must submit proposals by March 22. For more information on submitting work, click here

Penn State seniors have a long tradition of giving to Penn State, beginning with the class of 1861. Penn State landmarks such as the Lion Shrine, the Allen Street Gates and class scholarships are the result of senior class energy and financial support. The mission of the Senior Class Gift campaign is to promote a philanthropic spirit among the graduating class by providing students an opportunity to start their legacy of giving to the University.
