Learning and living go hand in hand. And an upcoming renovation campaign focuses on transforming the learning environment for Union College students. While classrooms are the obvious places learning happens, residence halls are also an integral part of education. Students study, tutor, and prepare in their residence hall rooms, and feeling comfortable and safe can help students focus on their studies.
The Learning and Living Campaign project will be realized in two phases. Phase one, slated for summer 2019, includes renovating 34 residential rooms in Rees Hall and reworking the lower-level amphitheater in the Everett Dick Administration Building. Phase two, beginning summer 2020, will involve renovations of second-floor classrooms in the administration building and possible additional residence hall upgrades.
The total cost of phase one of the Learning and Living Campaign is $525,000. Generous donors have already given more than $200,000 to the project.
Right now, thanks to an additional $125,000 challenge from a generous benefactor couple, your gift will go twice as far. Give now!
Maranatha Volunteers International is recruiting 100 volunteers to come to Union’s campus June 23 - July 12, 2019, to help complete the renovations to Rees Hall rooms.
