Alma mater

Loyalty Society - Luther College

Did you know that ‘alma mater’ means ‘generous mother’ in Latin? My alma mater sent me a note the other day saying that I’ve made a donation to the college in each of the past 19 years. In my defense, I would say I strongly believe in the value of higher education. In an age when tech billionaires like Peter Thiel are telling kids to skip college, it’s more important than ever to get a good education. 19 years though is clearly a mistake. I’m quite certain that I graduated three or four years ago, but I appreciate the gesture, Mariah!
