Greetings, alum!

There are still spots available if you’re interested in joining our Ribbon-Cutting and Open House for our Vertical Campus at the Wabash Tower. We’re looking for volunteers to help be docents for the event! This historic event takes place on May 5, 2012.

The details are:
May 5, 2012
10:30am – Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony
11:30am – Reception and Open House
425 S. Wabash Ave.
Chicago, IL 60605

If you’re interested in being a volunteer docent, you have to attend one of our 90-minute training sessions:

April 14, 2012, 9:30am – 11:30am
April 23, 2012, 4:00pm – 5:30pm

Just think back to the other important milestones in Roosevelt University’s history:

  • 1945 – Roosevelt College students attend their first assembly
  • 1947 –  Roosevelt College buys the Auditorium Building
  • 1996 –  Roosevelt University opens its Albert A. Robbin Campus in Schaumburg

And now in 2012, we can add Roosevelt University opens its Vertical Campus on Wabash Avenue.
