CSUN’s Nazarian College 50th Anniversary Celebration

September 27, 2016

California State University, Northridge’s David Nazarian College of Business and Economics doubled down on the big announcements at the college’s 50th anniversary gala celebration Thursday, Sept. 22.

The evening’s program concluded with the announcement of a $5 million gift from CSUN alumni Harvey ’70 (Business Administration) and Harriet Bookstein. CSUN President Dianne F. Harrison revealed that this gift and those from other supporters of the college put the college’s $25 million fundraising campaign over its goal, which launched two years ago with a lead gift of $10 million from CSUN alumnus David Nazarian.

“One of the true pleasures of being president of a university with the impact of CSUN is those moments when we see our great university make an even greater leap forward. This is one of those moments,” Harrison said. “Future generations of students will benefit from the investments made in the college.”

Pending California State University Board of Trustees’ approval, CSUN will rename Juniper Hall, which houses the Nazarian College, in honor of the Booksteins. Money from the Booksteins’ gift will be used to create the Bookstein Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Endowment to expand the activities of CSUN’s acclaimed VITA Clinic, which offers free tax-preparation assistance to low-income families and individuals; the Bookstein Leadership Endowment to support the college’s priorities, and the Bookstein Distinguished Chair in Real Estate Endowment in the real estate program of the Department of Business Law.
