Heritage University Celebrates Expanded Campus with Dedication of New Buildings
Toppenish, WA — Heritage University celebrates the addition of three new facilities on its Toppenish campus with a “Dedication of Buildings” ceremony on Friday, September 5, 2014.
The event opens up the university campus to the entire community to get a first look at the newly constructed Petrie Hall, which replaces the building of the same name that was destroyed by fire in July 2012; the new Dining Commons, which houses the café, Bookstore and conference room; and a new Information Technology facility.
“The entire campus community is anxious to show off these new facilities,” said David Wise, vice president of Marketing and Communications. “Our guests will not only be able to see the buildings, but they will get to meet our students and learn about all the exciting things they are doing at Heritage.”
The three buildings, as well as a campus master plan, which will lead university planning for future growth, was designed by the renowned firm Olson Kundig Architects from Seattle.
“Olson Kundig’s designs are innovative and their creative approach to improving the density of the campus will add greatly to our student’s overall academic experience,” said Dr. John Bassett, university president.
The “Dedication of Buildings” ceremony starts at 1 p.m. with a ribbon cutting, reception and campus tours immediately following. The event is free and open to the public.
