'U' receives millions each
r from prestigious s lu i

Although the University may
be feeling the uncomfortable
pinch of decreased government
funds next year, it still has a
pot of gold in those wealthy,
generous, aiumn- who enjoy
kicking in a few thousand to
their alma mater each year.
The University Presidents
Club, which is somewhat of a
Hall of Fame for those extrava-
gent donors, has been labeled a
status symbol, or exclusive
gathering place for the wealthy
by many. Nonetheless, the club
has been undisputingly success-
Sful in its endeavors.
BOASTING 1,497 members
whose total contribution to the
University is conservatively es-
timated at $39 million, Presi-
dent Robben Fleming says the
club is "probably the largest
and most successful such organ-
ization in the country."
Founded in 1961, the main
membership requirement is a
gift totaling $10,000 or more to
the University.
