Larry Reiners, CE 1965 and his wife, Judy, will visit campus to share in the celebration. Their $1.5 million gift will enhance Trine′s dual five–year bachelor of science and master of engineering degrees for civil engineers.
New advances in technology will be acquired, and additional personnel will join the program to assist with teaching and laboratory work. The couple′s gift punctuates a long history of generosity shown the university by the Reiners.
They are 20–year university supporters and have donated to the Fawick Hall master plan and the New Horizons and Vision for the Future capital campaigns. They have advocated for the institution and for higher education for 45 years.
