FGCU Student Union now ‘Harv’s Place,’ named for late benefactor

The Jan. 10 ceremony marking the official renaming of the Student Union was a bittersweet day for Janet Cohen.

Cohen is a Naples resident who gave FGCU a legacy gift of $3 million in honor of her husband, Harvey Cohen, who died in February 2011. Cohen was present at the renaming ceremony for the Student Union. The Student Union, now deemed the Harvey and Janet Cohen Center, has been affectionately been nicknamed "Harv's Place."

"Thank you for this donation. It definitely allowed us to grow and expand," said student body president Lauren Schuetz at the dedication.
