About the Renovation:
Construction began immediately following Commencement in May, 2012, with completion in summer 2013. The renovation not only included updating the current spaces inside the building, but also expanded terraces on both the east and west sides of the building. Every space inside Alumni Hall underwent a renovation. In the basement, students have access to a new exercise room and tutoring center. The first floor includes a new cafe, lounge, and writing studio. On the second floor the Memorial Room underwent extensive updates, and is joined by a new classroom and reading room. The third floor houses a new faculty office suite.
