Fenn Tower Ribbon-Cutting

A letter from President Michael Schwartz states the CSU community is invited to the ribbon Cutting for Fenn Tower on August 15.

Dear Cleveland State Community Members:

Please join the Cleveland State University Trustees and me for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony for Fenn Tower Student Living on Tuesday, August 15, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. The ceremony to celebrate Cleveland State's future and honor our past will be held at the front entrance of Fenn on East 24th at Euclid Avenue.

A cornerstone of the University's $179 million campus master plan, Building Blocks for the Future, Fenn Tower has been restored to its original splendor and has returned to one of its original uses - student housing. The Tower's rich history links to the University's predecessor, Fenn College, and through the years has been used for a variety of purposes including dormitories, classrooms, dances, campus dining, a library and administrative offices. Now, in addition to housing up to 438 students in apartment style living arrangements, Fenn will have three classrooms, a theater, a computer lab, a fitness center, and retail space. It is only steps away from the new recreation center and promises to be a major attraction for students thinking about a first rate education in a metropolitan setting.

We hope you'll be able to join us for the celebration.

Michael Schwartz

Hope you can be there.
