Many students relish their proximity to South Florida’s shopping meccas—but they need never step off campus for stylish Lynn-branded clothes or day-to-day necessities.
The Schmidt Family Campus Store's, contemporary design gives it the aura of a boutique that invites students and parents to linger.
Its central location ensures convenience and encourages repeat visits. Students can enter the store directly from outside on the southern, residential side of campus, or from inside the university center.
Merchandise displays just outside the shop draw students in to check out the latest Lynn gear. Seasonal displays will sport game time accessories, stocking stuffers and products made by Lynn alumni.
“The Schmidt Family Foundation always seeks to support institutions and programming that will enrich the community. The university center will certainly do that for Lynn.”

The store is the latest among dozens of generous gifts by the Schmidts, ranging from annual gifts and stock transfers to capital gifts for construction projects like the Charles E. & Dorothy F. Schmidt College Center and the Schmidt Family Studio at the Wold Performing Arts Center.
“The Schmidt Family Foundation always seeks to support institutions and programming that will enrich the community,” said Richard Schmidt. “The university center will certainly do that for Lynn.”
Schmidt said the foundation is proud to partner with Lynn, an institution that allows people to help themselves and strengthen communities. Since they’re both published authors, the Schmidts also like the connection between the new space and a traditional campus bookstore.
“Naming the campus store,” he said, “seemed like the right match for us.”
