The Grand Opening of Lindquist Hall
Save the date!
Weber State has something extra special to celebrate on its 130th Founder’s Day — the grand opening of the completely renovated Lindquist Hall. Join in the celebration, watch the ribbon-cutting and tour the renovated building beginning Jan. 7, 2019, at 2 p.m.
The building will have an additional 13,000 square feet, a welcoming main entry, natural lighting, modern labs, classrooms and collaboration spaces. The heavily used building has been a landmark at Weber State for nearly 50 years and houses all 12 departments and programs in the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences.
