What is the Class Gift Challenge?

The Class Gift Challenge is designed to establish a tradition of philanthropy among current students and recent alumni and to encourage them to give back to Reinhardt University.  The Class of 2010 rose to the challenge and chose to begin raising funds for a bronze eagle statue to display on campus.  The Challenge continues for each class, giving each student as well as alumni a chance to join this tradition and leave a legacy!

Why a Bronze Eagle Statue?

Reinhardt University is blessed with one of the most beautiful campuses in North Georgia. Nevertheless, Reinhardt is missing something….an embodiment of campus spirit, a statue of our mascot, the eagle. A statue has been selected and the committee is working diligently with Reinhardt administrators to determine the best location for the statue. The anticipated cost for the purchase and installation of the statue is $8,000.
