The new front door to Brock University officially has a name.

The transformational construction project that is giving a new look to the base of the iconic Schmon Tower when it opens this fall, will be known as the Rankin Family Pavilion, named to honour a significant donation by Niagara businessman Tom Rankin.

The $2-million gift was announced Wednesday, May 16 before Rankin toured the construction site with Brock President Gervan Fearon and other University officials.
