Class Agent and Reunion Giving Awards Honoring Outstanding Classes

Each year, the Annual Giving office awards trophies to recognize collective class giving. Class rankings as of June 30 determine the winners, with the exception of the trophies for reunion classes which have a Reunion Weekend deadline. These prestigious trophies reside in the Hotchkiss House on campus.
