UTICA – It’s Homecoming Weekend at Utica College, and when alumni come back to campus, they’ll see a big change.
The construction management building, Thurston Hall, is now complete. A dedication ceremony for the 15,000-square-foot facility is planned for Saturday at 10 a.m.
The building is named in honor of Gary M. Thurston, a 1968 graduate of UC’s construction management program. He has been the lead donor of this project.
This is the building where the next generation will learn, and the students of the past played a big role.
“There is a sense of pride in this building,” said Dimitar Todorov, an assistant professor at UC. “This is the pride of the construction management alums. Our alums build a lot of buildings. Some big, some small. They rarely get the chance to participate in the planning, design and construction, of the home of the program.”
More than 100 students are enrolled in the program that was relaunched in 2007.
