USC - Younes and Soraya Nazarian Pavilion and LiteraTea (tea house/cafe at the Edward L. Doheny Jr. Memorial Library (United States)

As a tribute to all four Nazarian children and to the educational excellence they each received at the University of Southern California, Younes and Soraya helped renovate a formerly unused pavilion and named it the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Pavilion. A tea house/cafe was built adjacent to the pavilion and named Literatea as part of the Doheny Library. The pavilion has become a popular gathering spot for students, special university programs, and musical events.
