“The other day, a student said to me, ‘I’m starting to feel a little weird about paying rent to my apartment,’ ” Ross said. “ ‘I feel like that money should go to the library because I spend most of my time there.’ This gift is very meaningful to students because the amount of time we do spend in the library is enormous. What a tremendous new space this is to spend that time.

“It also is a wonderful example for those of us getting ready to graduate to see a class (1958) that has gone on to do wonderful things with their lives but not forget their alma mater and the place that gave them their education.”
