New Legacy Hall auditorium to be named after FSU alumni Gail and Bob Knight

A pair of Florida State University graduates are giving back to the place where they say their success started with a $1.25 million gift to the FSU College of Business.

Gail and Bob Knight, an entrepreneurial couple who built and grew the largest event photography company in the world, say they have been successful because they invested in each other as much as in their Tallahassee-based business. Now, they want to share their success with their alma mater.

The couple's $1.25 million gift will establish the Gail and Bob Knight Auditorium in Legacy Hall, the FSU College of Business’s new home. They consider their gift an investment in both the College of Business and the next generation of Seminoles.
