As 2020 presented obstacles beyond our control, our students, faculty and staff persevered through countless institutional and societal changes. As the world continued to shift dynamically, one thing remained constant: the support from alumni, families and friends. Whether dedicated to scholarship, unprecedented student aid, experiential learning or faculty research, the generosity shown truly defines what it means to be a part of the Syracuse University School of Architecture community.

As you consider your long-term impact on the School, particularly during these challenging times of economic uncertainty and public health crisis, we wanted to share with you one way to support future students and faculty right now—deferred giving. One such alumna, Barbara Bice ’73 (B.Arch.) credits her success as an architect to the education she received from the School of Architecture. Remembering the experiences she had as a student, Barbara created an estate plan to make it easier for generations of promising young architects to help achieve their dreams while at Syracuse University.

“Syracuse University is important to me because it was where I spent my critical formative years. The friendships I made in the studios at the School of Architecture have sustained me for almost 50 years. The University gave me sports teams to cheer for, wonderful memories of a year abroad in London, and most importantly, a solid foundation for my professional career. I’ve worked hard, made good choices, and feel extremely good about leaving a legacy gift to the School of Architecture.”

-Barbara Bice ’73 (B.Arch.)

We encourage you, as Barbara did, to look back at your own experiences—to identify challenges, joyful times, moments of life-altering impact—and consider ways to make a lasting gift that is meaningful to you and to others in years to come. You can define your Syracuse University legacy now.
