Stunning New Behrakis Center Elevates Health Sciences Education
The impressive George D. Behrakis Health Sciences Center opened on West Campus in November 2002 to raves from faculty and students as well as from national architectural critics and urban planners.

At the dedication, George Behrakis, PAH '57, Hon. '98, spoke of his commitment to educations. "The more we can educate, the better we are as a country," he said. Gazing upon the state-of-the-art teaching building, he added, "We never had anything like this before." Behrakis and his wife, Margo, made a generous commitment- the largest in Northeastern's history- to name the glass-fronted facility that combines the Bouvé College of Health Sciences Schools of Pharmacy, Nursing, and Health Professions under one roof.

$2.4 Million Bequest Expands Presidential Scholars Program
The leadership campaign has received the University's largest bequest ever — $2.4 million from the estate of the late Marguerite S. Parker. The gift will create an endowed Presidential Scholarship fund that will support eight presidential scholars.

In 1997, President Richard M. Freeland created the scholarship program to recognize Northeastern's most outstanding students. Scholars excel in all three components of practice-oriented education — the liberal arts and sciences, professional fields, and co-op. To date, Northeastern has awarded scholarships to 84 of its best and brightest students with full tuition coverage for their final three years.
