For the last three months, Craig Hall at the corner of Grand and National has seen a steady stream of construction equipment and workers coming in and out. The third floor classrooms were remodeled to remove decades old sisal wall covering, referred to as the “burlap walls” by students and faculty, and floor tiles.
And finally, on Monday, August 23, just in time for the fall semester and after undergoing a 3-month renovation, the 3rd floor of Craig Hall will be revealed to students and faculty.
You are invited Monday, August 23, at 2:30 when the College of Arts and Letters will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to showcase the upgraded 3rd floor classrooms, including newly installed classroom technology. University and college administrators will be present along with faculty and students. Those attending will have an opportunity to tour the rooms and see the changes up-close. A small reception will follow the ribbon cutting in room Craig 334.
You will also have a chance to see a newly remodeled room dedicated to students: Craig 334 Student Resource Room. It’s a place for students to hangout in between classes to study or meet with other students and faculty. Be sure to stop by and see the new furniture, and grab some refreshments too. The room will be open from 8-5pm each day for COM students to use. It will be available on a limited basis at night for meetings and classes. We’ll have instructions for how to reserve the room.
We will see you there. Oh, and if you attend, you may have a chance to receive a piece of the vintage burlap wall!
