LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Opportunities to explore the interiors of three newly remodeled campus facilities are coming up during EOU’s Homecoming celebration Oct. 12-13.
Grand reopening and ribbon cutting ceremonies are planned at the David E. Gilbert Center, Zabel Hall and Pierce Library.
The Gilbert Center, formerly the Ackerman Gymnasium and more recently the temporary home of Pierce Library during its renovation, has been renamed in the memory of the university’s longest serving president to date and outstanding physics faculty member.
A dedication is planned for 6 p.m. Friday at the south entrance to the center and will include a welcome from EOU President Bob Davies and David’s wife Carolyn Gilbert.
Gilbert was EOU’s president from 1983 to 1998 and is remembered for his devotion to the university, its students, faculty and staff. He passed away in February 2012.
The ribbon cutting at Zabel Hall, headquarters for the College of Business and College of Education, will take place Saturday morning at 10 in the new courtyard on the southwest side of the building.

Pierce Library’s new look will be showcased with a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. Saturday outside the main entrance facing Ackerman Hall. Tours of both Zabel and Pierce will be available immediately after the events and continue through the evening until 6.
EOU is working with Hennebery Eddy Architects on the changes to the Gilbert Center and Zabel Hall, and Allied Works Architecture on the updates to Pierce Library. Fortis Construction is the general contractor for all three projects. Representatives from these firms will be available to answer questions at the events.
