Open for Business: Centennial Hall revitalized
Friday, September 28, 2007
An extensively renovated Centennial Hall opened this fall as the new home of the G.R. Herberger College of Business, and completion of the project is the SCSU Foundation’s current fundraising priority. Much of the building that for 30 years was known as "The Library" has been transformed this past year into offices for College of Business faculty as well as classrooms, an auditorium, breakout rooms, student common areas and a network research lab. The majority of the work has been completed, and the project is expected to be finalized in the spring of 2008.
The five-floor building also now houses the philosophy deparment and the Center for Student Success, which combines academic student services including the Advising Center, Career Services, Student Disability Services, Honors Program and the Multicultural Academic Center. An expanded Husky Bookstore occupies nearly half of the ground floor of the building whose groundbreaking in 1969 commemorated the institution’s 100th anniversary.
The SCSU Foundation has pledged to raise $2.2 million to complete funding for the $15.2 million project. The state funded the balance of the cost. For more information on how to support the project, contact Terri Mische, director of development, G.R. Herberger College of Business, at 320-308-6676.
