Dana Hall re-opens to the Bates community on Monday, Aug. 29 from 2-4 pm for light refreshments and a chance to celebrate its renovation.The renovation of Dana is an important part of both our revitalization of STEM at Bates and creating new flexible classrooms for all - this is truly an all-campus building. You’ll see new student spaces throughout the building, teaching labs on the first and third floors, and three new flexible classrooms on the second floor. Core facilities and accessibility have been improved as well. We are excited about the impact these spaces will have on teaching and learning in the decades to come. We are looking forward to sharing Dana with you and to celebrate the work of the many Bates employees and our partners who made this renovation possible.
