  • Spotlight on giving: Dr. Karin Ryding

    "I get a lot of requests for alumni donations, having three degrees from three different institutions: my undergrad school (Middlebury), the university where I got my masters degree (the American University of Beirut), and the university where I got my Ph.D. (Georgetown). I appreciate the education I received at all those places, but I feel deeply attached to Liggett, because it is where I grew up, where I had the closest friends, and because as a scholar looking back, I profoundly appreciate the quality of the University Liggett School faculty as well as their personal care and guidance through the rough times of adolescence. I feel privileged to be able to give back to University Liggett School and her traditions, and to contribute to her future." -- Dr. Karin Christina Ryding, '60 LIG
