The University of Georgia plans to dedicate a new residence hall.
A ceremony is set for June 27 in front of the new Rutherford Hall. University President Michael Adams plans to preside over the dedication ceremony. Attendees will have a chance to tour common areas and a student room in the residence hall after the reception.
The new dormitory stands on the site of a previous one that had the same name and had been built in 1939. The new residence hall has 261 beds, 100 more than the previous one, and is 80,000 square feet bigger.
The new building echoes its predecessor with monumental stairs leading from the Quad, signature columns, subtle arch work, Georgia brick details and traditional window design.
