Atrium named for Carole and Joseph Levy

In an April 27 ceremony, Kellogg named its popular atrium gathering space after the school's longtime friends, Carole and Joseph Levy '47. With about 100 guests in attendance, Dean Donald Jacobs praised the Levys for their contributions to Kellogg over the years. He also acknowledged Joseph Levy's professional reputation. "Joe Levy is the ultimate entrepreneur. A lot of people have great faith in his good judgment," said Jacobs, who went on to note Levy's role in helping build Kellogg's entrepreneurial curriculum in recent years.

Associate Dean and Director of Development Liz Livingston Howard '93 called Levy "one of Kellogg's most active alums," and pointed out that Levy, along with Patrick G. Ryan '59, was "the driving force" in the naming of the Donald P. Jacobs Center.

During the ceremony, Kellogg's a cappella choir, The Bottom Line, performed a song in honor of Levy and his wife. Based on the theme from the television program "Cheers," the song highlighted the reasons why students enjoy congregating in the atrium and thanked the Levys for their generosity.
