Linda E. McMahon Student Commons, Sacred Heart University
Linda McMahon (inset), the former wrestling executive now running for U.S. Senate, gave Sacred Heart University in Fairfield $5 million over five years - and the Catholic university is naming its new student commons building after her, pictured.
The 46,000-square-foot building, which cost $22 million, will include a bookstore, 250-seat student dining hall, private dining room, informal lounge spaces and outside seating.
McMahon first got involved with Sacred Heart when she was invited to speak about work-life balance for women. She later joined the board.
