The Hasselmann Alumni House wouldn’t exist without the involvement of  Matt Coco, a 1966  civil engineering graduate – even the Kathleen and Matteo Coco Great Room is named partly in his honor. The Miner Alumni Association named the room in recognition of Coco’s extraordinary service on the largest project in association history. He spent more than two years involved in every detail of the undertaking, from fundraising and land acquisition to design and construction.
