Laura Schwartz

At no other time in my life have I been immersed in such a rich environment as during my four years as an Exeter student (though I do not miss the homework!). It is with joy and gratefulness that I can experience Exeter again, through the lens of my two sons (classes of 2020 and 2022). They are making friends from around the globe, finding their voices around the table and exploring new interests. It is fun to watch!

Every Gift Counts

Combined, that number represents the single largest Exeter Fund gift.
