Where’s the Empire State Building, Andy?

Ben Smith discovers that the city’s Economic Development Corporation chief Andrew Alper has another love other than New York: the University of Chicago, where he is chairing a $2 billion capital campaign.

Alper closes a fundraising message for his alma mater with the words: Crescat scientia; vita excolatur!

Our sentiments exactly.
