HLGU to hold open house Thursday for two dorms; donations needed for renovations beginning this spring

Thursday, April 4, 2024 - 1

HANNIBAL, Mo. — Hannibal-LaGrange University invites the community to step into the past and future of student living at its upcoming open house event.

From 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, alumni, prospective students, families and community members are invited to explore the rich history of two of the university’s most iconic dormitories, Pulliam Hall and Crouch Hall, before they are renovated later this spring.

During the open house, visitors can tour both dormitories, guided by staff who will highlight key features and answer questions about the renovation. Alumni and community members will have the chance to appreciate the university’s commitment to providing exceptional residential experiences.

HLGU is anticipating an increase in enrollment this fall. These residence halls are needed to accommodate new students this fall and camps this summer.

The university needs to raise $500,000 by mid-April 2024 for these projects. HLGU has partnered with a volunteer building group, Campers on Mission, to provide skilled labor for this project. The group will be on campus at the end of April to complete these renovations, with HLGU responsible for providing the materials that the team will need to complete the renovation process.

Renovations to Crouch Hall will be new HVAC, exterior brick work, ceiling, carpet, paint and plaster repair. Pulliam Hall’s first floor will be completely renovated for new flooring, ceilings, upgraded electrical, replacement of the entry doors and refinishing of the antique woodwork.

In a press release, Ray Carty, president of institutional advancement, said “We invite you to be a vital part of this transformative journey. Your support can directly impact the lives of current and future students, ensuring that they have a safe, comfortable and spiritually inspiring place to call home during their time at Hannibal-LaGrange University.”

Light refreshments will be served. All attendees can enter a drawing for exclusive HLGU merchandise.
