Robert Adelberg, a 1959 graduate of Georgetown College, recalls his Georgetown experience:
“My last reunion was a time to remember our life-forming experiences at Georgetown, and to recall what we learned both in and out of the classroom. Fortune smiled to align us with outstanding faculty members, fellow students, and staff. I am so grateful for these lifelong ties. We prepared a foundation which has served us well in facing life’s challenges, joys, and disappointments. Our legacy is truly priceless.
My four years at Georgetown cost $7,000 including room, board, tuition, and my junior year at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland. That $7,000 was, of course, in another monetary era. But we were always conscious of searching for ways to give back.
The Legacy Society is part of our answer. During the latest tough economic times, the Legacy Society and its flexible framework provided an ideal vehicle for us to help fund Georgetown’s considerable potential.
We have included a bequest for Georgetown in our estate plans to support a top priority at the University. Our bequest will provide scholarship assistance to students, while ensuring the resources are available to us during our lifetime in the event of an emergency.
We feel good knowing that future generations of Hoyas will benefit from our planning … and we are thankful for this means of supporting and sharing Georgetown’s gifts with future generations.”
