Students Erupt in Cheers After Massive Donation Erases Tuition At New York Medical School

Students reacted with shouts and tears of joy when they learned their medical school in New York City will now be tuition-free following a massive and generous $1 billion donation. 

Knowledge, as has been said many times before, is power. Education is a powerful and valuable thing. It can change someone’s life, springing them forward to a better, more fulfilling career. That’s why so many people put a high degree of value on attending and then graduating from college or some other school beyond high school.

However, like everything else in life, the price of a college education has gone up considerably. Most people who attend any school after high school must take out loans to go. Then, after graduating, those student loan payments can be made for years, sometimes even decades after graduating. This can become an enormous burden, weighing heavily on one’s mind and bank account. 

As a clip posted on YouTube shows, students who attend the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City will be able to do so tuition-free. This comes after Dr. Ruth Gottesman, a member of the school’s faculty, announced her $1 billion donation. 

After the announcement, the auditorium erupted in pure pandemonium. Students immediately began jumping up and down, cheering. Some of the students were even moved to tears at the news.

Dr. Gottesman, as the clip points out, is the widow of financier David Gottesman. The money David made during his career, which included being an early investor in Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway, made that surprise announcement possible. 

What a generous and life-changing gift!

The clip adds that Dr. Gottesman only had one request from the school following her donation. She did not want them to change the school’s name from the Albert Einstein School College of Medicine. 

Proverbs 18:15 “The heart of the man of good sense gets knowledge; the ear of the wide is searching for knowledge.”
