UW Announces Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center Gift of $10 Million
The University of Wyoming today (Friday) announced a historic $10 million gift from philanthropist Marian Rochelle that will support the construction of a state-of-the art Gateway Center that will become the signature entrance facility to the university, connecting students, alumni and friends.
“I did it to help the university,” she says, “to bring in more people, more students.”
“The Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center is a culmination of my mother’s philanthropic gifting to the University of Wyoming,” says Rochelle’s daughter and fellow philanthropist, former state Sen. April Brimmer Kunz. “The Gateway Center is symbolic of the many doors she has opened to education for our students. It also will provide a wonderful entrance to the University of Wyoming that will be the crown jewel of the campus.”
Located on the corner of 22nd Street and Grand Avenue near War Memorial Stadium, the 60,000-plus-square-foot facility will be named the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center. Click here for more...
