On September 15, nearly 500 people joined the Quinlan School of Business to celebrate its new home—the John and Kathy Schreiber Center—and to support scholarships for business students.
The Schreiber Center Grand Opening Celebration featured several special guests. General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.), gave the keynote remarks, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel offered his congratulations.
Two alumni—Ryane Bohm (BBA ’10, MBA ’12) and Benjamin Korallus (BBA ’12)—received Quinlan’s Emerging Leader award for their ethical leadership and commitment to improving society. (Watch the video below to learn more about Bohm and Korallus.)
All told, the event has raised a net total of $390,000 to support Quinlan and its students.
“The mission of our University, transforming students into men and women for others in the great Jesuit tradition, would not be possible without leadership from deans like Kevin Stevens, our expert and dedicated faculty, or the support of generous investors,” said John P. Pelissero, PhD, Loyola’s interim president.

Quinlan dean Kevin Stevens welcomed guests to the Grand Opening Celebration by noting that the Schreiber Center “is no ordinary business school building,” as it supports innovative, collaborative, and cutting-edge education for the future’s responsible business leaders.
General Powell reflected on what makes a great leader and a great building.
“Great leaders give their people everything they need, and that’s what you’ve done here at Quinlan: you’ve given students everything they need.” said Powell. “The new facility gives you a great opportunity to realize your vision for the business school.”
The Grand Opening was part of a full day of celebrations for the Schreiber Center, Quinlan’s new home on Loyola’s downtown campus.
