February 4 Groundbreaking

John Binning, Class of 1945 and Mike Nickischer, Class of 2014 share the honor of turning the soil with the spade used for the 1964 addition.

NOTE: This event already happened – but we just received the photos and wanted to share a few with you.

W. ‘Jerry’ Solomon (Nebraska 1951), Governor Charles Thone (Nebraska 1944) and Linda Schwarzkopf, Director of Greek Affairs and Dr. Matthew Hecker, Dean of Students.

Brothers enjoyed a reception in the dining room then gathered in the living room for the ceremony.
