Michael Winston

Michael Winston knew exactly what he wanted in a college. "I chose Northeastern because of everything it offers," he says. "I wanted to build my resumé with amazing real-world experiences. I wanted opportunities to travel abroad. And I wanted the excitement of living in Boston."

His choice paid off, and today Michael is working as an IT consultant, a job he secured during his final semester. But the young alumnus isn't just forging his own future—he's planning for Northeastern's, too.

In appreciation for his Northeastern experience, Michael and his parents, Jeffrey and Susan, have named the university as a beneficiary of their estate. The gift, which costs them nothing during their lifetime, will ensure that future students benefit from Northeastern's unique brand of learning.

"If something were to happen to my parents and me tomorrow, we want to be sure the money is put to good use," says Michael. "When I considered which charities I wanted to support with my inheritance, I immediately thought of Northeastern."
