The newest on-campus living community at The University of Toledo will be celebrated Monday, Sept. 21, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house.
UT campus leaders and representatives from American Campus Communities, the project’s developer and manager, will cut the ribbon at 9 a.m. for the Honors Academic Village, located at Campus Road and West Rocket Drive on the northwest corner of Main Campus.
UT President Sharon L. Gaber and James E. Wilhelm III, executive vice president of American Campus Communities, will be joined at the event by UT Honors College Interim Dean Kelly Moore, UT Student Government Vice President Ian Michalak and UT Faculty Senate President-Elect Mary Humphrys. Tours of the building will be offered following the ceremony.
The ribbon cutting is one of a number of campus events taking place during the week of the inauguration of UT President Gaber.
The Honors Academic Village provides a modern on-campus living community for 492 students in fully furnished rooms and also offers an academic success center, state-of-the-art fitness center, and lounges for recreation and socialization.
The four-story, 142,000-square-foot building opened for the 2015-16 academic year and provides opportunities for living-learning communities for UT Honors College students.
