PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Two alumni brothers have given back to their community with a center that will allow families to prepare for college.

A $200,000 gift from Drs. Washington and George Hill will open the Hill Family Center for College Access on the campus of Rutgers University in Camden, where the twin brothers graduated in 1961.

Dr. George Hill is a professor and associate dean for diversity in medical education at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. “Without Rutgers, it would have been difficult for us to go on to college because neither one of our parents had significant money.”

“We thought that there certainly must be students like us, who just need a little shove, a little help, some place to study, some place to read and that’s why we did it,” said Washington Hill, a leading specialist of maternal fetal medicine at Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
