Modern and sporty, the boutique-style Schmidt Family campus store incorporates the same warm wood elements that appear throughout the University Center. Environmental graphics highlight Lynn’s athletic programs and stylish, shopper-friendly displays feature official Fighting Knights merchandise.

Made possible by a $1 million gift from Richard and Barbara Schmidt of the Schmidt Family Foundation, the campus store represents the family’s commitment to Lynn’s academic mission. Over the past 25 years, the Schmidts have made dozens of gifts to the university, from annual gifts and stock transfers to capital gifts for construction projects like the Wold Performing Arts Center.

“The Schmidt Family Foundation always seeks to support institutions and programming that will enrich the community,” Richard Schmidt said. “The University Center will certainly do that for Lynn.”

Schmidt said the foundation is proud to partner with Lynn, an institution that allows people to help themselves and strengthen communities. Since they’re both published authors, the Schmidts also like the connection between the new space and a traditional campus bookstore.

“Naming the campus store,” he said, “seemed like the right match for us.”
