Class of 1985: Support Scholarships and Create a Legacy

About My Campaign

Dear Classmates,

Through the Vilcek Hall Naming Campaign, we have a unique opportunity to shape the future of healthcare—by reducing the enormous burden of medical school debt—while creating our own class legacy. Although I did not live in the dorms, I remember hearing all the stories of dorm life—the camaraderie, group studying, and the not-so-glamorous rooms! Now, thanks to a transformative gift from Jan and Marica Vilcek, our students have a state-of-the-art dorm, home to over 400 medical students a year. 

I invite you to join me in uniting our class to raise $30,000 to name the “Class of 1985” room in the Vilcek Hall dorm.  All proceeds go to support scholarships. I’ve started us off with a $500 gift of my own, and I hope you too will consider a gift—big or small—to help us achieve the goal of 100% class participation. 

For any questions, please contact me directly or Hillary Griffin, in Alumni Relations, at 212.404.3668. If you would like to contribute via check rather than online, please make your check payable to NYU School of Medicine with “Class of 1985 Gift” on the memo line.  Mail to:

Thank you for considering this opportunity to honor our class and support the next generation of NYU-trained physicians.
