Union is building a new health and wellness center that will greatly enhance students' educational experience by offering expanded services to keep them physically and mentally healthy. The $2.3 million two-story, 6,600-square foot facility is being built adjacent to the Alumni Gym and should be completed by this fall.
The lead gift for the wellness center comes from longtime College benefactor William M. Wicker '71 and his wife, Pamela. Wicker, the vice chairman of Investment Banking, Natural Resources Group at Morgan Stanley, has been a Union Trustee since 2009. Generous support from Nancy Eppler-Wolff '75 and her husband, John H. Wolff, will establish the Eppler-Wolff Center for Psychological Services, which will be located on the second floor.
The wellness center also received support from Neil and Jane Golub, Charles Roden '60 and Lionel Furst '50. Other donors include Charles M. Wilson and Amy Bermingham (parents of Jack Wilson '14), Norman A. Lasda '69 and his wife, Geania, Mr. and Mrs. Ronald DePoalo (parents of Daniel DePoalo ‘14) and Dr. and Mrs. Marlon S. Rosenbaum (parents of Elliott Rosenbaum ‘15).
