Selling Dartmouth, literally

From The D today:

"Leading financial services firm UBS Investment Bank donated $1 million to the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration for use in the school's admissions office, Tuck officials announced on Friday. Tuck's admissions office will now be named the UBS MBA Admissions Suite in recognition of the grant."

Ha. Apparently this is a widespread phenomenon in business schools, and Tuck already has a lot of rooms named after corporations? I wouldn't know because I've never stepped foot in Tuck (and don't plan to any time soon).

However, I'd love to see this practice extended to the rest of Dartmouth's campus. How about we talk to that Dartmouth alum now president of Vivid Entertainment about renaming Loew Auditorium?
