    Alumni get new on-campus home

    News Office

    Alumni have a new home on campus in the former McCormick Theological Seminary building at 56th Street and Woodlawn Avenue. Built in 1922 for the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and designed by architect Howard Van Doren Shaw, the Tudor-style building now houses the offices of the Alumni Association staff, which moved in last week. The center, which occupies the first floor of the building, will offer a variety of resources for graduates visiting campus. A 900-square-foot great room will include a library and provide space for receptions and small dinners. A large conference room and small business center with phone, fax and Internet access also are available for alumni and alumni-related events.

The staff members who moved in on Thursday, Oct. 30, gathered in the great room for an impromptu meeting in their new facility.
