The grand opening of the newly renovated Gaines Hall will begin at 1:30 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 17. Faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the university are invited to attend.

A complete schedule of events can be found at the Gaines Hall Grand Opening Celebration page.

The Gaines Hall project, funded with a $32.5 million investment from the State of Montana, will greatly enhance the university's ability to provide hands-on educational opportunities for students. The renovated building will provide state-of-the-art instructional labs for undergraduate students in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, earth sciences, and physics. The building will also house the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures with its language laboratories and the offices of University College. Student success will be supported with an abundance of inviting new classrooms, help centers, and informal learning spaces.
