The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Park campus hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony today to celebrate the opening of Elizabeth Hall, the final of five building projects that was completed following the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Southern Miss administrators, faculty, staff, students, and community leaders took part in the ceremony to celebrate the building’s reopening.
Elizabeth Hall, which houses the College of Arts and Letters, was the final building to complete renovations after all five buildings broke ground in 2011. In addition to faculty offices, Elizabeth Hall is also home to the university’s Film Program which currently occupies ten rooms. The renovation project for Elizabeth Hall cost $1.7 million.
