Two alumni donated $4 million to IU-Bloomington's School of Education and other IU programs.
Nycha Schlegel and Dallas “Bill” Loos donated the money to places that were significant to them during their time at IU, according to a press release from the university.
A little over half the money will go to a new scholarship in their name for Wells Scholars.
The rest will go toward the Bill Loos and Nycha Schlegel Education Scholarship, the Bill Loos and Nycha Schlegel Business Scholarship and the Bill Loos and Nycha Schlegel Libraries Fund.
The couple met when they were resident assistants in Wright Quad. Now married, Schlegel has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education from IU and Loos has two IU master’s degrees, one from the School of Education and one from the Kelley School of Business.
"I am extremely grateful that IU gave me the opportunity to attend a world-class university," Loos said in the press release. "I want to give the same opportunities to other students who want to pursue their dreams."
