Take a seat!
The new auditorium in the College of Communication and Information is complete and getting much use by CCI faculty, staff and students. However, the college’s Take a Seat! Campaign to provide financial support for the auditorium renovation, is not quite finished. Forty-seven seats have been spoken for, leaving 51 still available. Don’t be left without one!
This is your opportunity to be a part of the College of Communication and Information’s future by making an investment in CCI that will live on through the seat you purchase and inscribe with your name. Your gift of $2,000 per seat will be recognized with a nameplate on the arm of the seat. You may choose your seat number (while available) and the inscription. Click here for more information on naming a seat, to find a diagram of the auditorium, and to see photos of the completed project.
