The Wall Street Journal recently featured Alumnus Bruce M. Newman in its “Donor of the Day” column, which features philanthropists who have made significant gifts to organizations in the New York area. Newman has generously given to Pratt since the 1990s, and has helped fund beautification projects across campus that have transformed Pratt with lush, green lawns and brick pathways. His $1 million donation, which coincided with Pratt's 125th anniversary year, will expand campus improvement projects including the development of an outdoor recreation area for students.
