Homecoming is always a special time of year for the entire University community with traditions like the parade and football game. But with this being the 60th anniversary of our School of Nursing, the Kermit Berg art gallery opening, the announcement of the John C Adams Finance Institute, and the inaugural Good Hall pillar naming at the President’s Lunch and Founders Day Celebration, this year’s Homecoming will truly be a celebration of our past, present, and future,” said Andrew Kocher, Associate Vice President of Alumni Engagement.
During 2018’s Homecoming festivities, the exterior restoration of the Good Hall pillars and portico was showcased. Built in 1904, Good Hall was the University’s first and only structure for about 18 years. It was named after the University’s third president, I.J. Good, and was home to the first University president, Rev. John Roberts. Good Hall has served as an administrative and academic building, library and chapel over the years.
This year, the four pillars of Good Hall are being dedicated in honor of distinguished alumni and faculty. Join us to find out who these amazing Hounds are, and how they have impacted our campus community over the years.
