MATTOON — All Lake Land College alumni and community members are invited to attend the grand reopening celebration for the expanded and renovated Luther Student Center on Thursday, Dec. 5.
Lake Land reported that the open house will run from 3 to 6:30 p.m., with tours and refreshments. The student center will be rededicated in memory of Lake Land’s fourth and longest serving president, Robert Luther, during a ceremony at 5:30 p.m.
“Serving from 1988 to 2006, Dr. Luther fostered a culture of innovation and student-centeredness, strengthened the college’s financial foundation, greatly enhanced the beautiful campus we have today and brought national acclaim to our academic excellence,” said college President Josh Bullock.
Bullock said it has been more than 20 years since Lake Land first identified the need to renovate and add space to the student center, located on the west side of the main campus. He said there is great pride in seeing this project come to fruition.
