Yvonne S. Boice gifts a picture-perfect terrace
星力注册送30元的捕鱼Businesswoman and philanthropist Yvonne S. Boice is a dedicated advocate of the arts, culture, education and women's rights. Through the years, in Boca Raton and beyond, Boice has raised awareness and millions of dollars.
In 2019, Boice expanded that tradition, providing the east terrace of the Christine E. Lynn University Center. The nearly 800-square-foot outdoor seating area provides a sunny spot for students to enjoy food, fresh air and a waterfront view.
"Every time I see the space I feel a sense of peace," said Boice. "This is a place where students can enjoy some quiet time, even in the middle of the campus hubbub."

Boice has a history of meaningful giving at Lynn University. The Yvonne S. Boice Circle of Flags at the campus entrance exemplifies Lynn's international spirit. The Boice Scholarship helps students study abroad. And the Yvonne S. Boice Box Office serves as the gateway to the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center.
"Yvonne has been a great friend of the university for many years," said Senior Vice President for Development and Administration Gregory J. Malfitano '73, '75. “The terrace is one of the most beautiful spots on campus, so it's a real living legacy."

In recognition of her work, Boice has been honored with many prestigious awards and two honorary doctorate degrees.
Through it all, Boice finds satisfaction in creating positive experiences for others. Speaking of Lynn as a prime example, she simply said, "I’m so happy to contribute."
