A newly renovated Tyler Hall will serve as a campus welcome center and will bring together the Admissions, Financial Aid, Institutional Advancement and Marketing and Communications operations of the College.
The building was officially opened in 1907 as one of two academic libraries in Indiana that were created by Andrew Carnegie, who funded more than 2,500 libraries worldwide between 1883-1929. Carnegie libraries, both public and private, were distinct and most were built in the classic Greek style. The building served as the College’s library until the new Lilly Library officially opened in 1964, at which time the old library was completely renovated and dedicated during the 1964 homecoming as Tyler Hall, a home for the social sciences. The building was named in honor of Leon and Minnie Tyler, both 1906 graduates who had distinguished careers in education and education administration.
Tyler Hall became largely vacant in 2002 when the Landrum Bolling Center opened. While the basement, second floor and attic stood empty, the first floor has been used to accommodate some music programs.
The latest renovation, which will pursue LEED certification, is to be completed in summer 2013.
