October 17, 2013 marked 40 years since the dedication of Mago Hunt Center for Performing Arts. After a fire in 1969 destroyed the buildings housing the music and drama departments, William “Bill” Hunt, then chair of the board of regents, generously financed the new facility named in honor of his wife, Mago Hunt. In honor of this milestone for the performing and fine arts department, all are welcome to view a pictorial display of Mago Hunt Center created by the University Museum in the display case across from the Shepard Freshman Resource Center on the first floor of Buckley Center. The University Museum is located in the basement of Shipstad Hall in room 014. Open Monday and Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and also by appointment. University faculty, staff, and students are invited to stop in and learn more about the University’s history. Contact Carolyn Connolly, museum coordinator, at 8038 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
