A reception in honor of Trustee Emerita Judy Nitsch '75 and her late husband, Tony Magliozzi, who have made a major gift to Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). In recognition of the couple's longstanding generosity and of Nitsch’s commitment to developing environmentally sustainable facilities at the university, the entrance to the new Sports and Recreation Center has been named the Judy Nitsch '75 and Tony Magliozzi Entrance.
Judy Nitsch is a 1975 WPI graduate and a trustee emerita. Her latest gift supports facilities and academic programs, both key components of the university’s current $200 million fundraising effort, If … The Campaign to Advance WPI. Nitsch, the founding principal and chair of the board of Nitsch Engineering Inc. in Boston, is among WPI's most dedicated volunteers and most generous supporters. In addition to this most recent commitment, the Nitsch/Magliozzi Green Roof atop East Residence Hall is named for her and Tony Magliozzi in recognition of their contribution to the construction of that facility. As a WPI trustee for 23 years—the first alumna trustee elected to the board, a member of the board’s Facilities and Campus Infrastructure Committee for her entire tenure, and chair of that committee for 16 years, Nitsch has brought her considerable expertise to bear on WPI's facilities development over the last two decades.
Friday, Sept. 27, at 4:30 p.m.
WPI Sports and Recreation Center, 100 Institute Road, Worcester, Mass.
The reception is to acknowledge the generosity and leadership of Nitsch and Magliozzi in helping WPI develop environmentally sustainable facilities on campus.
