Get together
Gasson Society members will join President's Circle donors for their annual dinner May 20, 2001. "We thought it would be fitting to host the University's two premier giving societies together," said Gasson Society Chair Thomas F. Ryan Jr. '63. "Both groups contribute substantially to the direction and success of Boston College. It makes sense to create opportunities for them to get together to share perspectives on their mutual interests." For more information about the dinner, please call 1-800-743-2453.

Pops time
The 9th annual Pops on the Heights scholarship gala will be held Friday, September 28, 2001. The event will take place in Conte Forum and will include a performance by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. The West Point Glee Club will join the University Chorale of Boston College under the direction of Boston Symphony associate lead conductor Bruce Hanmen. Call 1-800-767-5591 for more information.

On April 6, the National Campaign Committee met on campus for the sixth time since its inaugural meeting in November 1998. The committee heard from administrators Frank Campanella, who talked about his 30 years as executive vice president, and Helen Frame Peters, Dean of the Carroll School of Management, who shared reflections on her first eight months at the University. It was reported that 19 gifts of $100,000 or more had been committed since the previous meeting, supporting financial aid, athletics, faculty research, and the Center for Ignatian Spirituality.

New chairs
Outgoing Parents' Council cochairs Michael C. '72 (left) and Susan Argyelen P'99, '03 have passed the reins to former vice-chairs Matthew J. '72 (right) and Christine Botica P'00, '03. "Chairing the Parents' Council gave us a wonderful opportunity to meet and work with a great, dedicated group of people," said Michael Argyelen. "The Boticas put in a tremendous amount of time and energy as vice-chairs, and we look forward to their continued leadership."

For the team
A $100,000 campaign commitment from Robert Santangelo '82 will be used to create a scholarship fund to benefit Boston College athletes in any sport. Santangelo is a former member of the University's lacrosse team and a partner at Off the Record Research, in Purchase, New York. "Playing lacrosse for BC really rounded out my education," Santangelo said. "I formed friendships and gained experiences that wouldn't have been possible if I hadn't been a member of a team. My goal in creating this scholarship fund," he added, "was to help make sure that BC students who want to play college sports aren't denied the opportunity because of a lack of financial resources."
