Hearst Great Hall & Admission Lobby Get a Makeover - Campus Progress

Hearst Great Hall & Admission Lobby Get a Makeover

Two of the most frequently visited areas of campus recently received some upgrades.

In the Admission lobby in Lupton Hall, the “front entrance” to our campus, the furniture was replaced, the walls painted, and artwork and decor were updated. A TV was installed on the wall in the waiting area that continuously shows a slideshow of campus photos, student testimonials and other messaging to give campus visitors an overview of what Oglethorpe has to offer.

The Great Hall of Hearst, a favorite study spot and gathering place for students, is now even more welcoming with new furniture, including leather couches and chairs, a long table for group meetings and new light fixtures. The old carpet was removed to reveal beautiful hardwood floors, which have been refinished. The fireplace bench was reupholstered and the interior and exterior walls and bronze details on the entrance doors were repainted. The grandfather clock and piano were both restored to working order.
