Ribbon Cut at Lee

1 min read


Lee Hall was formally opened on April 17 with a ribbon cutting ceremony on the terrace.
At 4:30 p.m., students and faculty watched as the newly renovated building was introduced.  Vice President for Enrollment and Communications Martin Wilder began the event by introducing the services offered in Lee Hall.

“Student services is the heart and soul of Lee Hall,” he said.

He said that the Underground, another food and hangout venue for students, will be open next Fall.  Then Dean of Student Life Cedric Rucker called the rector,

Board of Visitors and President Judy Hample to cut the ribbon.  Hample cut the cake and drew names from a box for the audience to win an iPod nano and a Wii.  Refreshments, including cupcakes and popcorn, were served.

After the event, students and faculty toured the building.
