For the third time in six months, a University of South Florida business school is changing its name thanks to a multi-million dollar donation.

This time, it’s the USF Muma College of Business Lynn Pippenger School of Accountancy, which now bears the name of a retired Raymond James executive and USF graduate who recently gave $10 million to the school.

Last year, the University of South Florida College of Business became the Muma College of Business, thanks to a $25 million gift from USF supporters Pam and Les Muma.

Now, another long-time USF donor is stepping up. The college's School of Accountancy is now named "the Lynn Pippenger School of Accountancy," after the former Raymond James executive gave $10 million to the school.
