In order to help fund this construction and renovation project, we have identified several naming opportunities. Donors to the Fox Center for Academic Opportunity will be recognized for their generous support with a named space in the Center itself or the Owen D. Young Library.
These spaces will be visited frequently by St. Lawrence students for generations to come.
Spaces Already Named:
Overman Family Welcome Lobby - $100,000 - Named by Jeffery Pennell Overman '01 and Jaime DeSantos Overman '01
More space for more student collaborations
Over the past six months, the University has made several upgrades to rooms in the Owen D. Young (ODY) Library. These renovations give students new spaces to study and collaborate on their academic work. The changes in ODY also provide an opportunity for donors to support our students and the University’s goals by making gifts that offset renovation costs. Donors can name these spaces after family members, mentors, friends or themselves.
‘The Yellow Pipe Room’ - $500,000
Collaboration Space for Students and Staff - $250,000
