This year we said fond farewells and enthusiastic greetings to iconic campus buildings and the future they represent. The Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute opened the doors in August to the $45 million Lassonde Studios, a one-of-a-kind facility where students can live, create new products and launch companies.
In August, the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute was welcomed into its new home in the newly refurbished Thomas S. Monson Center (formerly the Enos A. Wall Mansion).
At the beginning of October, the Child and Family Development Center, which first opened in the 1930s, celebrated its grand reopening.
We said goodbye to Orson Spencer Hall (known as OSH), the beloved classroom building since 1955, but look forward to the Carolyn and Kem Gardner Building that will takes its place.
Finally, we celebrated the legacy of Milton Bennion and the building that helped shape the futures of thousands of general and special education teachers, counselors, administrators and educational leaders. The building will soon come down to make space for the David Eccles School of Business.
