Senior Parent Tributes

By making a gift in honor of your graduating senior, you can commemorate this milestone and honor their time at Roanoke College. Your gift can be directed to the Roanoke Fund for unrestricted support, to a specific academic or athletic program, scholarships, faculty and student support, or building projects.

With a gift of any size, you may also write a special tribute to your student. Your personal message will be recorded and shared with both you and your senior. These personal messages can express your admiration, love, and pride for all your student’s accomplishments.  

For a more permanent recognition on campus, a paver inscribed with your child’s name may be placed on Heritage Walk, the walkway leading to the historic Administration building. Individuals who make an unrestricted gift of $5,000 or more to the Roanoke Fund (to support Roanoke’s immediate needs) will receive a marker to recognize one’s place in Roanoke’s history. These are tributes that alumni can enjoy for years to come.  

Visit to make your gift online and submit your tribute. Tributes and related questions may also be sent to Suzanne Hiner, Director of the Roanoke Fund, at or by calling (540) 375-2088.
