There are 6 comments on BU’s Comprehensive Campaign Final Tally: $1.85 Billion

  1. It was a very nice evening
    The Boston Pops performed
    It was a surprise to see how many BU alumni
    are part of the Pops organization
    The figure skaters were excellent
    I had never been to the arena and I sat in
    one of the boxes. Excellent view and I plan on attending events in future
    I don’t think students know how generous the trustees were with their large financial contribution to the campaign Thanks

  2. Kudos to Dana Robert and Walter Fluker for providing a historical perspective including of the university’s founding school – the School of Theology. A special thanks to them as well as Dean Moore and all the other faculty, staff, alumni, friends and even current students who together raised more than $29M in support of theological education. Our recent alumni and students are also the beneficiaries and are forever grateful. Thanks again.

  3. Congratulations to the successful Campaign for BU and the beautiful enhancements to campus buildings and educational opportunities for students!
    Thanks also to all of the donor support of campus organizations which afforded excellent entertainment at the event as well as helping foster success of entities such as the 3-time national Intercollegiate Champion BU Figure Skating Club.

  4. Glad to have contributed a ‘semi fraction’ to this Campaign. BU opened opportunities for me, at one time only imagined. Dr. Brown, trustees, alumni , donors and others have truly catapulted my/our University to greatness.

  5. Kudos to all. BU is truly a great and groundbreaking institution. I graduated in 76 and 88 (Metropolitan College), and the school has never asked me for a donation.
