"A Colorado couple who both graduated from DePauw University have donated $25 million to the private liberal arts college to build a new dining hall and to endow need-based scholarships," reports the Indianapolis Business Journal. It is one of a number of media outlets reporting news of the gift R. David and Suzanne Hoover, both 1967 graduates of DePauw, made to their alma mater. "About $9 million will go toward the scholarship endowment and the rest will provide the lead gift for the dining hall to be named Hoover Hall," adds IBJ.
