Naming Opportunities

What’s in a Name?

Since 1885, American International College (AIC) has served the educational needs of a growing student population. With a commitment to access, diversity and opportunity, AIC keeps a firm grasp on institutional traditions while looking forward to the future of higher education.

Now more than ever, your support of American International College is vital as AIC takes the next steps in meeting the educational needs of both students and faculty. In order to grow, the College must upgrade and expand existing facilities while planning for the construction of others.

The College is embarking on a facilities naming campaign that will allow donors to select from a variety of campus buildings and areas that may be named in honor of your family, a beloved or special individual, foundation or company. All named spaces and structures will be designated with the appropriate signage or plaque.

Your gift can truly become a lasting tribute to your dedication to education and American International College. We are proud to point out that you will be following in the noble and generous footsteps of the Berman Family (Mark Berman Conference Room), Frank and Norma Colaccino (Colaccino Lounge), K. Kevin and Deborah K. Saremi (The Saremi Center for Career Development) and Peter J. Vogian (Peter J. Vogian Conference Room), to recognize but a few of the College’s distinguished donors.

Of further interest and recognition of AIC’s committed alumni, Frank Colaccino is a 1973 graduate of AIC while both K. Kevin and Deborah K. Saremi are graduates from the classes of 1983 and 1984 respectively.

The hallway landings between Amaron and DAR Halls, as well as the first floor elevator bank, provide just such study sanctuaries. Some of these areas only have room for a chair and table and others offer a bit more in the way of furnishings, but they are still perfect study lounges.
