Join the all-campus party celebrating the renovation and reopening of Peirce Hall, and welcome back a beloved Kenyon landmark. One of the College's architectural treasures and a center for community life, Peirce is more glorious than ever. The $28-million project preserved the building's magnificent traditional spaces while adding new amenities, with an emphasis on sustainability and local foods. The project included the complete reconstruction of adjoining Dempsey Hall. The party begins on Friday, October 24, with tours, a formal dedication, and dancing till midnight.
