The University of Virginia has met and exceeded its lofty fundraising goal.
UVa President Teresa Sullivan made the announcement during Final Exercises.
The fundraising campaign began in 2006 to raise $3 billion to support programs at UVa.
Much of it came from students, parents, faculty and staff.
In addition to scholarships and endowments, the money helped build or fund a number of projects at the University, including the John Paul Jones Area and the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center.
