In her dinner address, Maureen Sullivan, a Stanford graduate, said, "What really draws me to Boston College is what I perceive to be an emphasis placed on values as well as rigorous scholarly pursuits. I have the feeling the tools given [at BC] end up being those of the greatest value for living a good and useful life."

Cochairs of the Southern California Campaign, which held a kickoff dinner in June, are Robert L. Winston '60, Thomas J. Casey '73, and Christine Kelly Casey '74.

Senior year
Mary Lou DeLong has been promoted to senior vice president for University relations at Boston College. DeLong is responsible for educational fund-raising and alumni affairs, as well as the expansion and reengineering of the University's institutional advancement operation. "It is clear, as Boston College goes forward with its ambitious plans, that financial support from alumni is crucial to strengthening our position as a prestigious university committed to its heritage," said University President William P. Leahy, SJ. Prior to her current appointment, DeLong served as vice president for University relations, and as executive director of development and director of individual gifts at Boston College.

Campaign update
The Ever to Excel Campaign is well on its way to meeting the $400 million goal set at the Campaign's outset. To date, $306.6 million has been raised in pledges and $177.9 million in cash. "Alumni, parents, and friends have stepped forward with donations at all levels, demonstrating their strong commitment to the mission of Boston College," said Jack Connors, Jr. '63, campaign cochair. "This generosity will ensure the University's position among the country's most prestigious universities."
