New Building Open for Business

After 663 days, Gerri C. LeBow Hall is officially open for business.

On September 23, both students and faculty walked through the enormous glass doorways into a stunning, five-story atrium with rich woodwork and a dramatic red accent wall, a fitting stage on which to begin a new chapter in the history of LeBow College of Business. See photo gallery.

“It was a long day coming, and we couldn’t be more excited with the results,” said Frank Linnehan, Ph.D., interim dean of LeBow. “This is an incredibly joyous day for Drexel University, LeBow College of Business and for the city of Philadelphia.”

Classes are currently being held on the first few floors as workers continue finishing the upper levels, readying for the rest of the College to move in expected to be complete by the end of the first quarter. Undergraduate Advising is the only administrative office that moved into the building to be available for students’ questions first thing Monday morning.

The entire Drexel LeBow community is invited to attend the celebration of Gerri C. LeBow Hall on October 2 and October 3.
