HLGU Plans Carroll Science Center Dedication

by Rebecca Sneed

Hannibal-LaGrange University is excited to announce that a dedication for the new Carroll Science Center will be held on Friday, October 16, at 10 am in the lobby of the new building.

The community is invited to attend the dedication ceremony and ribbon cutting. Those attending the dedication are invited to stay for a reception and will receive a commemorative gift.

“This state-of-the-art science facility supports our growing medical science programs and will become the foundation for future expansion of degree programs,” said Dr. Anthony Allen, HLGU President.

The 40,000 square foot, 7 million dollar building houses a 58-seat computer lab/classroom, five science labs, two nursing skills labs, two nursing lab hospital rooms, a nursing library, nine multimedia classrooms, a spacious lobby, five student lounges, two conference rooms, two group study rooms, two individual study rooms, and 20 faculty offices.

HLGU is very grateful to alumni and friends of the University who helped make this building possible. Throughout the campaign, more than 500 gifts were generously given.

An additional $750,000 is still needed to furnish the CSC, and a campaign to raise these funds is currently underway.
