a part of history

William and Carol Koester PavilionThe stone and wood pavilion is named after ardent UToledo supporters William ('59, '60) and Carol Koester, who donated funds for the facility. The Koester Alumni Pavilion was dedicated in 2012 to honor outstanding alumni, past Alumni Association presidents and generous donors.

The pavilion sits at the northwest corner of the Glass Bowl, on a large plaza named for Chuck ('59) and Jackie Sullivan. The Koester Alumni Pavilion's Rocket Station is named in honor of the UToledo Women & Philanthropy organization.

Hundreds of alumni and friends supported the Koester Alumni Pavilion project. Their names are inscribed on the plaza's brick pavers. Alumni Pavilion pavers are sold out. Thank you to everyone who purchased one to be a part of the history of the Pavilion.
