GIFT TO SUPPORT THEATRE RENOVATION
W. Barret, Jr. School of Banking has
awarded $300,000 to CBU to help transform the 46-year-old CBU Theatre into
a 21st century educational and performance facility. When renovated, the
new University Theatre will serve as a venue not only for the theatre arts
but also a hi-tech meeting space for business programs and seminars. The
theatre will also be made available to the general public for musical presentations,
film screenings, symposia, and lectures. Technological additions, including
wireless Internet access, a control podium, and a digital video projection
system are planned.
The renovation project is scheduled to begin November 1 and
be completed by March 31. The Office of Advancement has initiated a campaign
for raise additional funds for the project. Interested individuals who would
like to support the theatre renovation project should contact Andrew Prislovsky
