Excitement grows as Lynn’s newest building takes shape.

Its clean, elegant lines now evident, the Christine E. Lynn University Center is already capturing admiring glances from the entire campus community.

“The building is unbelievable,” said Gregory J. Malfitano ’73, ’75, senior vice president for development and administration. “The vistas it provides—east over the lake to Snyder Sanctuary, south to the new Potomac entrance and pedestrian walkway, and west to the athletics facilities—are spectacular.”

Construction is on schedule and budget, he adds, with an opening planned for early 2019. Fundraising is on target, too.

“Mrs. Lynn gave the lead $15 million gift and challenged us to raise another $15 million,” Malfitano said. “We’re very close to meeting that goal. So many people have stepped up and followed her lead. More than 100 people have committed $10,000 or more to this project.”

Mrs. Lynn recently visited the site, and is thrilled to see the progress.

“It was extremely exciting to tour the new university center for the first time,” she said. “While not yet completed, the ‘bones’ of the building are already in place, which allowed me to visualize just how spacious and comfortable this new heart of our campus will be. I am completely convinced our students will love the services and facilities this building will contain, and I am very much looking forward to its opening in the not-too-distant future.”
