A year and a half after renovations were completed, SUNY Cortland will hold a pandemic-delayed ribbon-cutting to celebrate the $25 million transformation of Moffett Center. The ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, March 10. Wait til you see what they did with the old gym.
The President’s Office will host the ceremony at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 10, in the sun-lit central gathering area of the nearly 70-year-old building. Before the renovation, that space was a 1950s-era gymnasium.
“Although many members of the campus community have experienced the new Moffett Center, many have not, and we hope they will take this opportunity to visit,” President Erik J. Bitterbaum said. “It really is an amazing academic space.”
In addition to Bitterbaum, speakers include Zach Newswanger, associate vice president for facilities management, and Taylor Hunter, Student Government Association president.
The gymnasium has been transformed into a 3,400-square-foot forum filled with study alcoves and comfortable furniture where students and faculty can meet. New skylights flood the atrium with natural light, while a second level mezzanine offers access to a variety of reimagined classrooms.
