Student drawing Lehigh blueprint

A Letter From Mike Caruso

A Letter From Mike Caruso

Dear Friends,

Mike Caruso

Since I graduated from Lehigh more than five decades ago, I can still rattle off the names of the Lehigh professors, coaches, and mentors who changed my life: Leeman, Tresolini, Dunlap, Smolansky, Barry, Dowling, and the list goes on. Relationships like these are what make diehard Lehigh alumni. If you are fortunate in life, you have several families. I rank my Lehigh family as one of those most dear to me.

Having been a recipient of a scholarship at Lehigh many years ago, I established the Caruso Family Memorial Scholarship Fund as a way to ensure that talented students have that same experience. As a Lehigh Trustee Emeritus and Chair of the Tower Society, I want to thank those who have made commitments to Lehigh and also those who are considering it. Gifts to our endowment fund are more than just generous. They are an investment in Lehigh’s outstanding students who will go on to become tomorrow’s leaders and problem solvers.

As you explore the Planned Giving website, please keep in mind that it is designed to provide you with valuable information about our many creative giving opportunities.
