A northern Indiana Catholic women's college hopes to raise $80 million in the largest fundraising campaign in its history.

St. Mary's College in South Bend already has raised more than 75 percent of the funds through gifts and pledges.

The college's trustees approved the campaign in June 2008. It's due to continue through the end of 2014.

A quarter of the fundraising goal is earmarked for endowed scholarships and student financial aid. About $15 million each would go toward the college's annual fund and to improve athletic facilities. The remaining funds would go toward academic endowments, renovating a science hall and library improvements.
