For physics professor Michael J. Naughton, even the most complicated equation can reveal a simple truth. But there is one equation that everyone can understand: An annual gift to Boston College equals opportunity. Annual gifts of all sizes make possible everything from financial aid to student formation programming. Annual support also funds groundbreaking interdisciplinary research, like that conducted by Naughton and his colleagues in the field of nanotechnology. Their work provides research opportunities for Boston College students—and may one day lead to advances in cancer detection, solar energy, and other critical areas. No matter how you calculate it, your support counts.
