University Commons Will Connect Campus and Community

In addition to the sports performance center, LR announced a comprehensive project to the west side of campus, the Duane and Madeleine Dassow Commons.

The two-story complex will include a renovated president’s home and the addition of a new building. The president’s house will offer space for academic and administrative meetings, workshops and office space. The new structure will comprise the president’s living quarters and significant event space.

“The benefits of this project will be felt throughout the Lenoir-Rhyne community as campus leaders bring together students, faculty, alumni, and community leaders in a residential setting,” said Duane ’75 and Madeleine ’75 Dassow, who donated $1 million toward the project, which will named in their honor. “We are excited to see the west end of campus find a new life.”
