owe a great debt to Immaculata University
for the life-changing values and academic
habits I formed as a student that have pro-
vided a foundation for my life and my career.
The University’s faculty inspired and challenged
me with their common goal to develop and
encourage excellent women; the friendships
formed during my college days have sustained
me throughout my life. I graduated from
Immaculata thinking that I could do any-
thing and be just about anyone I wanted to be.
Remembering the University now in our will
is one way in which my husband, John, and I
recognize the University’s quality and express
our hope for its future.
