Starting this August, prospective students and their families will be introduced to The University of Toledo in Libbey Hall, a historic building on UT’s Main Campus.
“We’re extremely excited to move to that part of campus,” said William Pierce, director of undergraduate admission. “I’m looking forward to being close to University Hall and Centennial Mall; that’s really the heart of campus.”
The move is expected to happen before Monday, July 29, so that the office is prepared to begin recruitment for the 2014-15 academic year beginning in August.
Since this April, contractors have been busy renovating Libbey Hall to maintain its charm while making it a modern and usable space for UT enrollment.
The second floor, which is used as a dining hall for banquets, will remain a gathering place for the UT community and offer upgrades to presentation technology. The third and fourth floors, which have been vacant, will become home to several new offices.
On the third floor, offices will house admission officers who help new students understand what UT is about and what options they have for education. On the fourth floor will be more enrollment specialists, including Pierce and Dr. Cam Cruickshank, vice president for enrollment management and online education.
An open house will be held once the move is complete; watch for the date to be announced.
