Despite the amazing gift, they probably still can't get their hands on seat-back chairs on campus. :-)

Kudos to them.

That is a tremendous act of generosity from the Collins family. Tip of the cap to them...

From 2017:


The Lesley and William Collins Business Analytics Lab

The Lesley and William Collins Business Analytics Lab, a 1,300-square-foot facility at the Tobin College of Business, was supported by a leadership-level gift from Lesley H. ’83SVC and William L. Collins ’76C, ’12HON. Mr. Collins is Chairman, CEO, and CIO of Brencourt Capital Management, LLC. He also is Chair of the University’s Board of Trustees. The Business Analytics Lab is a teaching center that connects theory with modern market and business practices. The state-of-the-art lab has 40 desktops with multiple Bloomberg terminal licenses. The lab also includes a video wall and a color LED stock ticker.

According to Norean R. Sharpe, Ph.D., Dean of The Peter J. Tobin College of Business, the new and enhanced facilities “will dramatically improve the academic preparation of our students and their ability to compete for full-time positions at top firms. These gifts demonstrate the dedication and devotion of our alumni to student success and strategic growth at the Tobin College of Business.”

In case this escaped you, Bill Collins is the board member mentioned by name and defamed as someone who should resign by the guy who appeared on the francessa show.

Mr. Collins had already been extremely generous to st John's in both time and treasure before this incredible gift.

Some people put their money where their mouth is. Others put their mouth where there money should be.
