Dartmouth must be doing something right

Despite all the recent debate among Dartmouth Alums as to whether or not the school is going doing the drain, a pledge for a charitable donation to the College still made Slate's annual list of the 60 most generous charitable donations of the year:

"William H. Neukom—a $22 million pledge to Dartmouth College. Neukom, 63, chair of Preston Gates & Ellis, a Seattle law firm, and former executive vice president of law and corporate affairs at the Microsoft Corp., in Redmond, Wash., pledged $22 million to Dartmouth College, in Hanover, N.H. The gift will establish an institute on computational science. Neukom is a 1964 graduate of the college and serves on its board of trustees."

Just wait until the Buzzflood hears about this one...
