MAKING A DIFFERENCE
In a word, the multidisciplinary education I’ve received at USC has been phenomenal — and, now with your support, I can continue to dive into the subjects that I love, and which I believe will come to define the coming generations’ greatest challenges. On behalf of myself and my peers, thank you for your generosity, and for making it possible for me to further my education.

Commemorating a Family Legacy
“I will honor in my work the connection that Elizabeth and her sister have to the culture and history of their ancestors. In a wider sense, I want to thank the Van Hunnicks for their understanding that the history of Europe has a more general value for our understanding of Western civilization and the way the modern world is developed.”

Giving Back of Time and Talent
