The Road Ahead

Though much has changed, friendship and loyalty remain at the heart of this story. What began with Charles, Sidney and Gus continues to be bound up in the ever-deepening relationships between Susquehanna's leaders and the Degenstein and Apfelbaum families.

Their support not only lent the university security but underwrote programs and activities that enabled it to reach levels of institutional quality that otherwise were beyond its reach. The programs and activities made possible by this generosity have opened doors to the future and enabled the mission of the university in ways that are unimaginable without them.

Since Charles began his unparalleled support of Susquehanna University, his generosity and that of his namesake foundation have benefited thousands of students. May the friendships that began more than 40 years ago endure and continue to grow well into the future.
