What is the Annual Fund? The Annual Fund directly supports the College’s operating budget and impacts each and every Elmira College student each year.

Today’s students immerse themselves not only in the Elmira College community but also in the globe through a variety of on- and off-campus educational programs, community service, and Term III study abroad opportunities. Thanks to the generosity of trustees, alumni, parents, and friends, the 2011-2012 Annual Fund totaled $1,266,905.

Legacy & Destiny Campaign In December 2012, the College concluded the Legacy & Destiny Campaign to build a new state-of-the-art dormitory, Meier Hall, and renovate and re-open Cowles Hall. Trustees, alumni, parents, and friends stepped forward with gifts which distinguish this Campaign far beyond campaigns of the past, raising a total of $34M in gifts and pledges. In addition, $12.1M was raised for the Annual Fund.

Cowles Hall — Our Legacy Built in 1855, Cowles Hall was Elmira College’s original building, holding the hopes and dreams of its founders and generations of women who dared to seek an education equal to that of men. The home of dormitory rooms, dining hall, chapel, classrooms, library, clinic, the stage, the Cowle Bin, and administrative offices, the building was the center of activity for generations.

8

It has been the site of plays, chapel services, bridge games, late night gossip sessions, men waiting in parlors for their dates to descend the spiral staircase, art classes in the Belvedere, and Commencement on the Portico. Cowles Hall remains a beloved symbol of this great College to the women and men who were transformed by their experiences here. Prior to the Legacy & Destiny Campaign, Cowles Hall had been silent for more than twenty-five years…awaiting those who would make their gifts to give it new life. Thanks to alumni, trustees, parents, and friends, Cowles Hall re-opened in May 2012. Now the home of the Office of Alumni Relations, two student seminar rooms, two historic parlors, the central Octagon, the Cowle Bin, and a chapel seating 300, Cowles Hall has returned to vibrant use by the College and community.

Meier Hall — Our Destiny Meier Hall, a grand collegiate gothic building in the style and spirit of Tompkins and Hamilton Halls, is a modern residence hall meeting current needs. Styled in the “great Mansion” concept for 140 students to live, study, and work together, Meier Hall, remains loyal to Elmira’s residential college tradition while advancing 21st century learning styles. The main floor houses an elegant main lounge, an informal, recreational lounge with a pool table, and two classrooms for student use. Each upper floor has window alcoves in the hallways. With doors and beautiful views of campus, these serve both as private study areas and gathering spaces for group study. Private bathrooms on four of five residential floors provide flexibility in housing students according to gender. The terrace level contains a laundry room, workout room, music practice rooms, and a study room.

The Legacy & Destiny Campaign has equipped Elmira College to advance in the ranks of the great small colleges of the nation.

Li Peterson Rettie ’50 There’s never a dull moment in Li’s life…always on the spot in an emergency…an amazing ability to grasp the situation…cool headed…understanding of others…in her lighter moods labeled as a ‘small riot’…happiest when piloting her Hampton around Long Island Sound.” —1950 Iris Li Peterson Rettie ’50 came to Elmira College from Greenwich, Connecticut and graduated with an A.B. in Economics. After a brief stint in life insurance, Li founded her own pension consulting firm, eventually selling her share in the company and continuing with her own highly successful actuarial consulting business. Li was awarded a Chartered Life Underwriter’s Degree (C.L.U.) in 1968 by the American College of Life insurance and holds numerous other professional certifications, including American Academy of Actuaries and Chartered Financial Consultant. She designed, built, and leases out a retail-office building in downtown Greenwich. Pursuing her lifelong love of sailing, she is a member of both the Riverside Yacht Club and the New York Yacht Club. Li has won several awards, including the Riverside Yacht Club distance cruise in 1998 and 1999 on her sailboat ÄLSKLING. In 1994, the Riverside Yacht Club named her Lady of the Year. Li is a strong advocate of philanthropy. Because she benefited from an Elmira College scholarship, Li established the Joseph H. and Ellen A. Peterson Scholarship during the New Century Campaign, in memory of her parents, so that future EC students could have a similarly rewarding experience. Her father taught her the skills of investment and financial planning, setting her on a course of future success. In 2004, she became an active and invaluable member of the Board of Trustees.

10

In recognition of her significant planned gift to the current Legacy & Destiny Campaign, one of the largest gifts in the College’s history, Elmira College named the new chapel in the east wing of Cowles Hall, the Peterson Chapel. Li reminisces that during her first year at Elmira College, she served as the ‘bell girl’ in Cowles Hall, answering the door when students returned from holiday. The plaque will read, “Elizabeth Peterson Rettie ’50, Cowles Hall Bell Girl, 1946.”
