REDEDICATION OF JOHNSON HALL SLATED TUESDAY
OSWEGO -- SUNY Oswego and State University
officials, students and representatives of the Johnson family will
gather Tuesday, Sept. 30, for the official rededication of the
college's Johnson Hall.
Members of the campus and local community are
invited to participate in the rededication ceremony at 4 p.m. at the
south entrance of the building. Afterward, residents of the hall will
host an open house and tours.
Now home of the college's award-winning First-Year
Residential Experience for freshmen, the building was named for Harold
B. Johnson, one-time chair of the college's Board of Visitors (now the
College Council) and editor and president of the Watertown Daily Times,
when it opened in 1958.
The building has been closed for the past two years
for extensive renovations, which included the addition of a fourth
floor and a connection to Lakeside Dining Hall. The $13.4 million
renovation increased the capacity from 190 to 240 residential students.
