Those attending the CCI Homecoming Tailgate were among the first to view the newly renovated Communications Building lobby, which contains the following features.
The west wall has a case displaying CCI’s Mission Statement and a bookcase for displaying information about CCI faculty publications and CCI alumni and student achievements.
Each side of the orange center support columns has one of CCI’s core values scripted on it. Custom built circular benches were added at the base of the columns and much needed electrical outlets were cleverly disguised in the sides of the benches.
A banner spanning the entire lobby displays the name of the college along with each of its schools. Two TV screens, for displaying a variety of video content, are mounted on the walls at the back of the lobby on each side of the entrance to the Patrick Auditorium. In addition, benches with plenty of electrical outlets are provided at the back of the lobby for students to use before and after class.
The east wall supports a stylized image of the Communications Building printed on a stainless steel like structure. Five clear acrylic cases are placed over the image and display the following: Student Award Winners, Faculty Award Winners, Alumni Awards Winners, and the names of donors who have contributed at levels qualifying them for the Dean’s Circle, the Bickel Society and the Circle Park Society. Giving levels for CCI’s newly created lifetime and annual giving societies are as follows.
Circle Park Society – $100,000 and above in lifetime giving
Karl A. Bickel Society – $25,000 – $99,999 in lifetime giving
