Redefining the Classroom

Students fly first class in newly renovated South Hall

Posted: January 10th, 2017


FIRST CLASS, LEARNING - Students in Professor Robert Boston's macroeconomics course have the privilege of being the first class to hold a session in Lake Superior State University's newly renovated South Hall, on Jan. 9 in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. The first day of class caps a $13.5 million renovation that started in April 2015. "We are pleased to see this project come to completion," said LSSU President Tom Pleger. "It represents a community effort that has resulted in the commissioning of a state-of-the-art facility that links LSSU's historic past to its future." South Hall got its start in the early 1900s as an Army barracks, and was acquired by Lake State at its formation as a branch campus of Michigan Tech in 1946. Over the years, South Hall has contained faculty offices, classrooms, the university bookstore, the Native American Center, and a math and science center. LSSU's Lukenda School of Business moved into the facility over the holiday break. A formal building dedication will be held on April 21, during which South Hall will be rechristened as R.W. Considine Hall. (LSSU/John Shibley)
