We are excited that The Barn – our newest venue for student gatherings, events, and concerts – is finished. It will open to student organizations for their events this fall (a lottery was held in the spring to select dates to use The Barn), and parents and families can tour this great new space during Family Weekend.
This is a night shot of the facility, and I hope you’ll agree it looks like a terrific place. Even better, it is located on the east side of campus, near Palmer and Piccolo residence halls and thus within walking distance for our students. So they can have a wonderful new place for on campus events and it will be a short distance between The Barn and their residence halls.
