  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

Student Legacy Giving

The Senior Class Legacy Campaign is your first opportunity to give back to Otis. You may not have the resources to make a big gift, but you can make a difference through participation. The Senior Class counts for 4% of the College's alumni; you can have a significant impact on Otis' fiscal well-being and on the value of your degree.

Giving to the O-Fund demonstrates your satisfaction with the Otis education. It helps establish the foundation and legacy of support that will continue every year. As Otis improves its alumni participation rate, corporations and foundations that base their giving decision on the % of alumni that give back will be more inclined to contribute. With more financial support from foundations and corporations, Otis will continue to recruit outstanding faculty and improve key programs, while increasing financial support to deserving students.

This year, we ask all seniors to start their legacy. Let's make this class the first one ever to receive 100% participation, it's easy! Each gift, each year, makes a significant difference. Remember corporations and foundations benchmark their giving to how many give back, not how much. Any gift will help!

Please make your gift today!

If you have any questions or if you need help making a gift, please contact Kristi Bieber, Director of Development, at (310) 665-6859 or email at ofund@otis.edu
