Events:

• On Wednesday, August 27 at 4:30 p.m., there will be a dedication of the J. Mark Miller Hall.
If you would like to help us honor Dr. J. Mark Miller, please attend the dedication ceremony. Many outside guests are expected to attend this event, so we apologize in advance if your parking is inconvenienced this day.

In the future you will hear this building referred to as Miller Hall. (Formerly the Business Building) This change is reflected in student’s schedules, so if they inquire about Miller Hall, you can help direct them to the right location. The name is already up on the building and we will have yard signs helping to direct people as well.
