Higher Ed Alumni Support the Ruffner Hall Renovation

Higher Education alumni took a lead in making gifts to put finishing touches on Ruffner Hall during its recent renovation with help from Jay Chronister, Professor Emeritus. Dr. Chronister rounded up a group of Higher Ed alumni, faculty, and friends to name Conference Room 206 in honor of Freddie W. Nicholas (Ed.D. ‘73). (Some donors are not named because they wished their gifts to remain anonymous).

Ruffner Reno

After 40 years on Grounds the education building is undergoing a major transformation.  Students, faculty and staff at the Curry School are enduring some temporary disruption as Ruffner Hall, which has housed Curry since 1973, undergoes renovations and upgrades.

When Ruffner Was New

Over the 1972-73 winter break Curry faculty, staff, and graduate students moved into a big, bright new education building where everything was clean and fresh.
