Dickinson College opened its renovated and expanded Kline Center earlier this semester to strong, positive reviews from students and is set to host the official dedication Thursday, October 23. The dedication ceremony will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony and panel discussion about the sustainability features incorporated in the LEED Gold Building.

CannonDesign’s John Reed, Design Principal for the Kline Center, will join Yaki Miodovnik (Landscape Architect), Kevin Snoke (Wagman Construction) and both Scott Nobel and Les Poolman from Dickinson College in the panel discussion moderated by Ken Shultes, Associate Vice President of Sustainability and Facility Planning at Dickinson. CannonDesign’s Phil Dordai will also be on hand to take part in the dedication event.

The panel discussion will focus on Dickinson’s approach to sustainability, facility development and the Kline Center’s role on campus. The center provides additional space and resources for Dickinson’s varsity athletes and all students including the addition of five regulation-sized squash courts, a larger fitness center, café and outdoor sport court. The building reenergizes a critical circulation path on campus and creates a hub for collaboration and student activity.
