Lance Factor, George Appleton Lawrence Distinguished Service Professor of Philosophy, discusses the significance of literary societies in the building of Alumni Hall.
The third floor of Alumni Hall is the grandest space in the building. As you can see in this artist’s rendering, the floor is open in the middle, with a view of the reception area below. This floor will be home to the Lincoln Studies Center, the Dick and Joan Whitcomb Heritage Center, and Office of Alumni Relations. This floor also includes a study area and meeting rooms.
In this artist’s rendering, you can see a view of the second floor of Alumni Hall looking south toward campus. As you enter the building from South Street, the Mark and Jeannette Kleine Center for Community Service will be on the left and the Gerald and Carol Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study will be on the right. In the center of this floor will be an atrium opening to the third floor. This is where the theatre was previously located. To the left of the atrium will be the Admission Hospitality Room and staff offices. To the right will be the Bastian Family Center for Career and Pre-Professional Development and Eleanor Stellyes Center for Global Studies.
The second floor of Alumni Hall will welcome prospective students and their families and visitors to the Knox campus. As you enter the floor from South Street, it will open into an atrium that is open to the third floor.
This floor will include the Office of Admission, Bastian Family Center for Career and Pre-Professional Development, Gerald and Carol Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study, Eleanor Stellyes Center for Global Studies, and the Mark and Jeannette Kleine Center for Community Service.
The first floor of Alumni Hall will be the entry point into the building from the Knox campus. It will house the new home for the Office of Admission and Class of 1963 Office of Financial Aid. This floor will also feature a circular seminar room, conference room, student lounge and numerous study areas.
