Olin is giving thanks to all the construction workers who are building the school’s new Knight and Bauer Halls with a special pre-Thanksgiving lunch on Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013.


An early Thanksgiving feast welcomed construction workers to the Knight Center dining room.

Dean Gupta initiated the luncheon last year and extended the invitation again this year. The Aramark staff at the Knight Center was prepared to feed 150 crew members.

Tarlton is managing the 175,000 square foot construction project that is on schedule to be complete in the Spring of 2014.  A dedication ceremony will be held May 2 with a special business symposium to inaugurate the new buildings on May 3. Stay tuned for details!
