Topping-Off Ceremony for Construction Milestone

Over the last few months, members of the Cushing community have been walking by the rapidly progressing construction of our new dorms, which are set to open this fall. Today, we gathered by the site to celebrate a major milestone: a topping-off ceremony to signify the completion project's framework. Earlier this week, that final beam, painted white, was placed in front of the dining hall so that our Penguins could sign their names and leave their mark on this exciting addition to the Cushing campus. 

Each dorm (one for girls and one for boys) will feature forty-five single occupancy student rooms and four spacious units for faculty members and their families. Additional amenities include two spacious common rooms in each building, as well as a kitchen for student gatherings and events. The dorms are sited on the hill just below the Iorio Arena and offer sprawling views of the Cushing campus.
