Hood College hosted a virtual ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the newly renovated Beneficial-Hodson Library and Learning Commons.
The renovations, which began in January 2020, have transformed the Beneficial-Hodson Library into the Beneficial-Hodson Library and Learning Commons; a new and dynamic learning space on the Hood College campus.
“We are delighted to finally unveil the transformed Beneficial-Hodson Library and Learning Commons and we are eager for our students to return to campus so they can explore the space in person for the first time,” said President Chapdelaine. “We’re also enormously grateful towards The Hodson Trust and the State of Maryland as these crucial renovations would not have been possible without their support.”
The renovations cost approximately $7.2 million and were funded primarily by contributions from The Hodson Trust and the State of Maryland, as well as several other generous benefactors.
