east hall

"KALAMAZOO, MI — The Western Michigan University Alumni Center, at WMU's original home atop Prospect Hill, is on track to open in October. In recent weeks, the portico on East Hall has been painted. Scaffolding is starting to come down, and crews have been laying sidewalks that will connect the grounds between North Hall and East Hall, said Renee Pearl, director of engagement in WMU's Office of Development and Alumni Relations."

The project is scheduled to be completed by June, 2015

Offices of development and alumni relations would be located in new alumni center

Core of hall will become an alumni center. Both wings will be demolished

University has said preserving both wings would cost $10-million each
