The ribbon cutting ceremony to open SLU's newest residence hall, Grand Hall, will take place at 2:30 p.m., Aug. 8.
The ceremony will include brief remarks, a blessing and post-ceremony refreshments in Grand Hall's dining location.
Following the ceremony, the hall will be open for those who want to see its dorm rooms, study spaces and other amenities.
The ribbon cutting will take place outside of the building. It marks the culmination of nearly two eyars of planning, preparation and construction. The first residents of Grand Hall move in next week.
Grand Hall will house 528 first- and second-year students on six residential floors. It will also be home to three Learning Communities: Diversity and Global Citizenship, Engineering and Innovation and Ethical Leaders in Business.
