J. Donald Monan, SJ, C. Michael Daley '58, and the Daley grandchildren
enjoy the festivities at the 11th annual family skating party held
on Sunday, March 3, in Conte Forum for members of Fides, the President's
Circle, and the Gasson Society. More than 400 people attended this
Thomas P. '68 and Jacqueline D. '68 O'Neill have committed to making
a gift of $250,000 to name the Thomas P. '68 and Jacqueline D. '68
O'Neill Fellowships Program Fund in support of the University's
Fellowship Program, which prepares students to compete for prestigious
fellowships. In recent years, more than 25 Boston College students
have won Fulbright Grants to spend a year pursuing their own projects
in such places as Japan, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, and Bulgaria.
Other Boston College students have won Marshall, Mellon, Truman,
Goldwater, NSF, and NSEP Scholarships to help fund graduate study,
to study abroad, or to complete their educations at Boston College.
Boston College will launch the Chicago Campaign on Friday, November
1, 2002, the eve of the Boston College vs. Notre Dame football game.
The campaign, cochaired by R. Michael Murray '61, Matthew Botica
'72, and Brian T. '76 and Mary L. '78 Casey, is an important initiative
as the conclusion of the Ever to Excel Campaign draws closer.
