During Homecoming 2011, the Class of 1959 met and voted to renovate an area on campus that is prominent and meaningful to many. If you are a current student or one that graduated decades ago, everyone remembers the stone fountain and steps in front of the historic North Carolina building. After years of wear and tear, this area is in need of a facelift. Renovations to the North Carolina entrance are a part of a three-phase project to enhance what is called the College’s “historic district” –Tufts Tower, Virginia Residence Hall, the North Carolina Building, and Tennessee Residence Hall.
The Class of 1959 is using this special project as a memorial to celebrate the lives of deceased classmates. The Class is well on their way of reaching their goal of $47,000! To date, the class has raised more than $15,000 in gifts and pledges!
