Commencement 2017


Senior Class Giving

Support LIU!

Each year, the senior class comes together to support LIU and a future students by making a gift to the University. Your gift will help another pave the way for future Blackbirds, helping them realize their potential and fulfill dreams at LIU, continuing the legacy of senior class giving. The Class of 2017 Scholarship Fund will provide scholarships for incoming freshmen in 2017.

Why should I give?

The Class of 2017 Gift is your first opportunity as a soon-to-be LIU graduate to participate in a long legacy of alumni support and to do your part to strengthen the value of a LIU degree. Alumni participation, at any level, has a powerful impact on the reputation of our school, and helps to improve our US News and World Report rankings.

Tradition: The Class Gift Cord

Members of the senior class who support The Class of 2017 Gift will be recognized for their generosity at Commencement! By making a gift of $20.17, you will receive a special honor cord to wear at Commencement and symbolize your gift to future Blackbirds. You will help ensure that an incoming LIU student will be given the opportunity to enjoy the same rewarding and enriching education that you received.

Don’t miss your opportunity; visit or contact the LIU Brooklyn Office of Alumni Relations at 718-780-6562 or to purchase your Class Gift Cord!

Family and friends may also leave a tribute contribution to honor a graduate.   You may make gifts online by visiting or by mailing a check payable to “Long Island University” to LIU Alumni, 720 Northern Blvd, Brookville, NY 11548.

Golden Commencement

The LIU Brooklyn Alumni Association invites you to return to your LIU roots and participate in our second annual Golden Commencement Celebration. You and your fellow alumni, who graduated in 1966 and earlier, are invited to walk in the commencement procession with current graduates. Golden Commencement is a wonderful experience and provides a chance to reconnect with classmates and join the University in celebrating your return as well as LIU Brooklyn’s most recent graduates.
