The College recently reached the $96.6 million mark of the Bicentennial
Campaign, with total receipts of $15 million for the last fiscal year, according to Dan
West, vice president for College Relations. The College's Annual Fund exceeded $4 million,
up from $3.3 million the year before, with contributions from 52.3 percent of the alumni,
one of the top participation rates in the country. The cost-per-dollar-raised was 13
cents, down from 13.3 cents last year. The College's fund-raising program recently
received a 1995 Circle of Excellence in Education Fundraising award from the Council for
the Advancement and Support of Education.
