Private universities depend on the foresight and generosity of their alumni and friends. Syracuse University has been most fortunate. Giving has reached levels no one could have predicted at the beginning of the decade. An improved economy was a factor, but the generosity demonstrated by so many was both unexpected and deeply appreciated.
