Bloomfield College Unveils Carlozzi Commons

Carlozzi Commons
 
On Saturday, November 3, the Bloomfield College community officially unveiled Carlozzi Commons. Trustee Nicholas Carlozzi; his wife, Cathy; and the Carlozzi family foundation made an extraordinary campaign leadership gift, which has culminated in the College naming an area of campus after them. Carlozzi Commons is an outside space adjacent to the Quad – a special place for Nick and Cathy, who come to commencement every year to celebrate students and their achievements.
 
After experiencing the loss of their beloved sister, Beth, to breast cancer, the family announced that one of the scholarships to be awarded through their endowed scholarship fund will honor her. The annual memorial scholarship will benefit nursing students -- a fitting honor, as Beth was a longtime nurse.
 
“Over the years, we have been inspired – even awed – by the lengths to which Bloomfield College students will go to get a college education. We’ve also been inspired – and awed – by how far over and above their job descriptions Bloomfield faculty and administrators will go to help them,” the Carlozzis shared, in a joint statement. “Bloomfield College fills an important niche in the educational ecosystem of our state and our country. It is an honor and a privilege for us and our family to help ensure the continuity of such determined striving and such uplifting support.”
 
Nick, Cathy and their family have a longstanding commitment to providing support to Bloomfield College. Family philanthropy is very important to them, and their giving is a model for how a family can come together and affect lives through informed philanthropic decision making.
