BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech head coach Brent Pry and Tech Athletics officially unveiled the first look at the newly-renovated Sanghani Player Lounge on Thursday. The 2021 renovation was made possible thanks to the generosity of Virginia Tech graduate and longtime donor Mehul Sanghani as part of a larger gift to Tech Athletics. The renovation also includes expanded offices and work space for Tech's player personnel and recruiting staff.
Sanghani and his wife, Hema, have a long history of giving back to their alma mater. In January of 2021, the couple made a $10 million gift to Virginia Tech to support the newly renamed Sanghani Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics, which will be headquartered at the university's groundbreaking Innovation Campus in Alexandria, Virginia. The Sanghani's also endowed and established The Market of Virginia Tech to combat food insecurity on campus and in the surrounding local community.
In addition to funding the player lounge renovation, the gift to Tech Athletics from Sanghani will also fund four new full-time positions in football recruiting to further enhance the Hokies' player personnel initiatives, with particular focus on continuing to bolster Tech's graphic design and digital content teams. The contribution for Sanghani also includes as annual contribution to Tech's Football Enhancement Fund.
