ITEM No. 5 – RECOMMENDATION – New Residence Hall Renaming

Darryl Curfman presented the recommendation to approve the name “Hyalite Hall” as proposed for the New Residence Hall.


The etymology of the name “Hyalite” was discussed as well as its historical and geological ties to this area. The name is associated with a creek, a trail, a reservoir, a lake, a canyon, a peak, and a mineral.


The New Residence Hall is currently under construction and when complete will house 510 freshmen and include amenities such as resident meeting spaces, collaborative academic work area, lounge spaces, etc. (Renderings of the building were presented).


At this point Residence Life would like to move forward with officially naming the building “Hyalite Hall” as they are in the process of planning marketing materials, grand opening ceremonies, and updating departmental information items for recruiting purpose.  President Cruzado has reviewed the proposed name. 


Kris Johnson motioned to approve the name as proposed.  

Leslie Schmidt and Chris Fastnow seconded the motion.

The Vote:  12 Aye, 0 Nay
