Photos: Students tour Alumni Hall

Alumni Hall opened its doors to a select group of students Tuesday, Oct. 8, the anniversary of one of the building’s historic cornerstone events.

On Oct. 8 1890, former President Benjamin Harrison laid one of Alumni Hall’s three cornerstone bricks. During the anniversary of the event, the Knox College Office of Communications surprised five students with a private tour around the interior of the old building. Sophomore Kayleigh O’Brien and senior Laura Pochodylo organized the contest through Facebook and Twitter, asking people to share their favorite memories of Alumni Hall.

Alumni Hall, expected to finish renovations by fall 2014, is currently being gutted to allow for the insertion of administrative offices.
