A West Virginia University alum is donating $1 million for the school's hospitality management program.

Mike Bodnar, two-time WVU alum, continues supporting his alma mater.

Bodnar's $1 million gift will be used to establish an entrepreneurship and innovation endowment, as well as a hospitality and tourism support fund.

Bodnar said at this point in his life it's time to give back.

"The first-third you're learning, the second-third you're doing, and the third-third you're giving back. So I felt like I wanted to go out and our business model around finding young entrepreneurs," Bodnar said.

In 2010, Bodnar and his business partner donated Tzaki's Mediterranean Café to the college of Business and Economics.
