Cups to cheer about for senior Captains

New senior class glasses offer great deals that go towards the senior class gift

You may have seen the posts about a senior class glass going around. Seniors have been able to purchase a drink glass that reads “Class of 2020” on it. The glasses are currently $10 for students to buy. 

“$6 of the $10 goes to the senior class gift that will be presented to President Trible at the Champagne Toast before commencement,” Senior Class Gift Co Chair Alexa Hladick said.

So each person that purchases a glass will be donating towards the senior class gift. In addition to the donation, buying the glass comes with some perks. 

Not only is it a souvenir from your time here at CNU, but there are currently partnerships where students with the glass receive special deals at certain places around Newport News.

“Partnerships right now are Manhattan’s and there are others to come,” Hladick said. 

Students are enjoying the current deals at Manhattan’s and hanging out with one another but they are also excited for more deals to come.

“I’m excited for more partnerships in the area, and I have already participated in the kick off at Manhattan’s,” senior Sarah Casey said.

It is nice to have this glass and participate in the deals they are offering and to keep up to date on the new deals and partnerships are coming make sure to follow them on social media. That is where they will be announcing updates.

“Students should buy them because not only will it benefit them, but also the class of 2020,” Hladick said. “They will be a legacy of the class of 2020 and will be able to leave their gift to Christopher Newport University. One small purchase helps leave a lasting legacy,” Hladick said.

So, to participate in the deals and to donate a little bit to your senior class of 2020, be sure to purchase your own drink glass before the limited-time offers are gone.
