Maurice Kanbar—a 1952 graduate of Philadelphia University and the man behind Skyy Vodka—has made the largest donation in the school’s history. To thank him for the $15 million gift, the university has named the Kanbar College of Design, Engineering and Commerce in his honor. Kanbar previously donated $6 million to the school, for which they named the Kanbar Campus Center after him. [Philadelphia Business Journal]
