Feinberg Receives Surprise Donation, Panopto to Support Synchronous Lecture-Watching

CHICAGO, IL—Following New York University’s announcement of free tuition for all medical students, the Feinberg School of Medicine announced Wednesday a recent, large donation from Dean Eric Neilson’s close friend, Illinois gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker. Pritzker noted that his altruism was purely motivated by his support of the school’s mission.

His donation brought Northwestern just $100 million short of their $800 million goal, likely enough to eliminate tuition for all of their medical students. In response to the news, Dean Marianne Green wrote in an email to the student body: “We are so grateful for Mr. Pritzker’s generous donation.” She went on to mention that the donation in its entirety would be used to support the upcoming Panopto renovation, and that “Panopto will be down next Friday from 2-5 p.m.”

Second-year medical student Jason Fitz, already on a full-ride scholarship, said “I guess the news is OK. It makes sense honestly, since it’ll help address one of Feinberg’s 3 major priorities of student spaces, IT, and scholarships.” Dean Pat Garcia was also excited about the announcement, citing the ability to “take the whole curriculum online, eliminate in-person lectures entirely, and increase the number of evaluations people have the time to fill out.”

Eugene Silinsky was less pleased, stating “How can I use my toys to teach if they won’t let me give in-person lectures? Panopto is worse than Brooklyn’s hipster problem which, by the way, is the only reason I left that beautiful city.”

This message is approved by J.B. Pritzker, the candidate for governor. Fighting for what’s right — and getting results.
