Goerge Lucas graduated from the University of Southern California in 1966. And now, 40 years later decided to make the school really glad they accepted him by donating $175 million dollars to the school.
This gift from the Lucasfilm Foundation is the largest gift USC has ever received from a single contributor.
$75 million dollars will go to construction of a 137,000-square foot film school, the other $100 million will go to the Universities endowment.
This gift came hours after it was announced that Lucas would be the grand marshall of next years Rose Parade...despite all of George Lucas' achievements, maybe he's just always wanted to be in a parade, and now his dream has come true?
