Western New England University Receives $1 Million Gift

Jan 29, 2013

A $1 million gift to Western New England University in Springfield will establish and equip a unique  interactive classroom for business students. 

   The donation from the estate of a couple who built a business from the ground up will create a financial trading room where students can buy and sell securities and commodities using the same real time information available to Wall Street traders. Attorney Jeffrey Sagalyn, a longtime friend of the late Frances and Norman Cohen said the couple credited what they learned at the University for their business success

   The Cohen gift is also funding scholarships and a $100,000 student managed investment pool.
