Senior Gift Tradition

Senior Gift Tradition

An annual tradition at Bentley, the Senior Class Gift supports the Endowment for Professional Development and offers families an opportunity to recognize the dedication of faculty, staff, and coaches who have made a meaningful impact on the lives of students.

This tradition is a way for families to say thank you to the educators who have profoundly shaped their students’ lives and leave a lasting impression as they begin their tenure in the Bentley alumni community.

Last year, the 2022 senior class raised more than $30,000 to support faculty and staff in developing their teaching practice and enriching the student experience.

Looking Back: Bentley Class of 2022

From institutions like Amherst, Bowdoin, and Columbia to Tufts, University of Chicago, and Williams, the 84 members of the Class of 2022 earned 349 offers of admission to 133 colleges and universities, enrolling at 58 different institutions.

The Class of 2022 had 25 among them remain in California for college, 55 graduates go out of state, three students attend college in Canada, and 1 student take a gap year.
