In 1977, Drexel alumni Max and Sam Korman were honored with the Korman Center on campus. The building originally served as Drexel's library, and from 1983 became the data center on campus.
A generous gift from the Hyman Korman Family Foundation allowed the entire building and quad in front to be updated in 2016. The new Korman Center, dedicated on June 6, 2018, added two stories of collaborative workspace, new student space and a new façade to the existing Korman building while blending it with a modernized Quad. On May 29, 2019, the Korman Writing and Tutoring Center opened for students.
