It was St. Patrick’s Day 2014. First day of classes after Spring Break. Bleary-eyed students got an amazing wake-up call when they entered Knight Hall and Bauer Hall for the first time.  “Wow,” “Cool,” “Amazing,” were just a few of the exclamations of delight uttered as students stepped into the five-story high glass Atrium for the first time.

The beautiful wood surfaces of the Frick Forum, curved glass banisters, and natural light streaming in through thousands of transparent panels surrounding the Atrium made everyone stop and look up.

Exploring the new classrooms, study rooms, Emerson Auditorium, the stairwells, and elevators was like a huge treasure hunt with surprises behind each door.

Two years later, the newness has not worn off. The Atrium is still sparkly and awe-inspiring when the sun shines or it rains or snows, day or night. Watching campus tours parade through the Atrium, I always smile as the visitors look up and and around  and say, “Wow, this is an amazing place!” just like we did on March 17, 2014.

Years from now, I hope you will be telling your children and grandchildren about the first day of classes at Knight Hall and Bauer Hall on St. Patrick’s Day 2014!

It was a historic occasion with Chancellor Wrighton, Provost Thorp, and Executive Vice Chancellor Hank Webber in attendance to welcome everyone to Olin’s expanded home.

It was great to see the wide-eyed, happy reactions as students stepped inside the Atrium for the first time. Enjoy more first day photos on our Flickr page.13246995875_2fe08c2f43_n
