FGCU Invites Media to Dedication of the Harvey and Janet Cohen Center
1/6/2012

FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University President Wilson G. Bradshaw invites the media to celebrate the dedication of the Harvey and Janet Cohen Center, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 10 at the student union building.

The student-centered grand dedication will offer free hotdogs, drinks and chips to students wearing "Harv's Place" buttons, a nickname for the union that has quickly become part of the culture of the campus.

In September, Naples resident Janet Cohen gave FGCU a $3 million gift to enhance the university and enrich the college experience. Cohen and her late husband, Harvey, also established a scholarship fund in 2006. In appreciation of their meaningful gifts, FGCU will dedicate the student union building to Harvey and Janet Cohen.

Media should park in the grassy area between Lot 6 and the loop road. Please do not park in the loading/unloading zone. Media should stop at the Parking Kiosk to obtain a parking pass.

For more information, media representatives should contact Assistant Vice President for Community Relations and Marketing Ken Schexnayder at (239) 590-1083.
