Delaware Campus opens!

ribbon cutting

More than 400 people were on hand as Columbus State President Val Moeller officially opened the new Delaware Campus on Monday, June 28.  The main building was named in her honor by the Board of Trustees, and Chairman of the Board Bill Dolan unveiled a plaque in the lobby after reading a resolution in Dr. Moeller’s honor.  Eric Fingerhut, Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents, was among the attendees who helped cut the ribbon at the conclusion of the ceremony. Tours and a luncheon outdoors followed, and the weather managed to cooperate for both!  The college estimates upwards of 2,000 students will attend classes during the first academic year on the campus which begins this fall.  A video of Monday’s highlights can be viewed here.

Columbus State is having the busiest week ever with the Grand Opening of the new Delaware Campus yesterday, and the first day of Dr. David T. Harrison’s administration beginning Thursday!

President Harrison will begin his first day with the Student Ambassadors, who will give him the grand tour across campus in the morning.  Dr. Harrison will meet briefly with the media, then with faculty members, Staff Council and other groups.  He will then attend a reception for the whole campus from 2-4 p.m. in the WD Conference Center Ballroom, and everyone is invited!
