Students' success is a testament to your support
President Magrath says time is running out on Bold.Brilliant.Binghamton – The Campaign for Binghamton University
At this year’s spring Commencement, I had the privilege of seeing nearly 3,200 degrees conferred, the largest Graduate School ceremony in school history and a Harpur College ceremony that filled nearly every seat at the Events Center. I really enjoy seeing the pride in parents’ faces as students celebrate the culmination of all their hard work.
Our students’ success is a testament not only to their own efforts, but also to the support and commitment provided by our alumni and friends. Nowhere has this been more evident than in the remarkable achievements of Bold.Brilliant.Binghamton – The Campaign for Binghamton University. We publicly launched the comprehensive gifts campaign a little more than a year ago, and now count nearly 30,000 individuals helping to make Binghamton one of the best universities in the nation. I am incredibly proud of our alumni and friends who have committed themselves to making a difference.
Alumni support of Bold.Brilliant.Binghamton is already making a difference. It is helping us attract the most qualified students and develop innovative and challenging academic programs that push our graduates to the front of their chosen fields. It is assisting our faculty in their pursuit of new knowledge and enabling the University to develop the resources necessary to sustain our tradition of excellence. Alumni are making our University — and our world — better.
Because of the generosity of our alumni, the campaign has already raised $92,117,569 for Binghamton University and its students. But we have a long way to go to reach our goal and the clock is ticking — we have just a year to raise the final $4 million.
It’s a challenge, yet I’m confident we’ll make the goal because alumni commitment is powerful evidence that they value the University and are working to help it reach its potential.
C. Peter Magrath, President
