Assumption College Names New Building the Tsotsis Family Academic Center After Gift

New England Council member Assumption College is naming a new academic building on its Worcester, MA, campus the Tsotsis Family Academic Center after receiving the second largest gift in the school’s history from Dorothy and Michael Tsotsis.

Michael Tsotsis, a 1971 Assumption College graduate, said he made the gift to make a positive impact on his alma mater and to leave a lasting mark on the school. The 62,000 square-foot Tsotsis Center will house 13 high-tech classrooms, seminar rooms, a 400-seat performance theater, and faculty offices.

“We are grateful to Michael and Dorothy for their generous gift, as well as the other alumni, benefactors and organizations who have contributed more than $14.4 million in support of the new building,” said Francesco C. Cesareo, Ph.D., President of Assumption College. “Since graduating from Assumption, Michael has remained committed to the College, a reflection of the lifelong impact of the transformative education he received at Assumption. As the namesake of the new academic building, his family will inspire Assumption students who, in this building, will realize the integration of the classic liberal arts tradition with professional formation. We anticipate that the students who are educated in this building will have the same transformative experience that characterized Michael’s four years at Assumption.”

The New England Council congratulates Assumption College on the gift from Dorothy and Michael Tsotsis. Read more in Masslive and the Assumption College press release.
