Jumping in the River

Last spring, more than 2,011 members of Boston University’s Class of 2011 donated to the Class Gift fund, raising $35,000 for clubs, scholarships, athletic teams, and BU’s schools and colleges. By meeting their goal, the seniors prompted an additional gift of $100,000 from the BU Alumni Council. Can the Class of 2012 top that record-breaking goal?

Dean of Students Kenn Elmore had promised to jump into the Charles River wearing a tuxedo if the Class of 2011 reached their fundraising goal. Watch him make good on his promise.
