Officials at California State University – Northridge have named the building that houses the university’s business college Bookstein Hall in honor of alumni Harriet and Harvey Bookstein.
The renaming of Juniper Hall, home of the David Nazarian Collge of Business and Economics, recognizes the $5 million gift from accountant Harvey Bookstein and his wife. The donation helped CSUN reach its fundraising goal of $25 million for the business college. Earlier, the Booksteins endowed a chair in taxation at the school.
“There are few individuals who have had as profound an impact on CSUN and our students as Harvey and Harriet,” said CSUN President Dianne F. Harrison during an Oct. 17 ceremony marking the building’s new name.
Harvey Bookstein graduated from CSUN in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He became a certified public accountant and co-founded firm RBZ in 1975. In 2015, the firm merged with Armanino LLP, where Bookstein in now a senior partner.
