Carroll University shows off remodeled campus building damaged by last year's storm
WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It was June of 2019, when Carroll University in Waukesha was torn up by a straight-line wind storm. The storm seriously damaged and shut down two buildings on the Carroll University campus including Education Hall, which lost most of its roof. Fast forward to almost 15 months, it appears brand new.
"If you drive through the campus now, you will see, we have well recovered," said Cindy Gnadinger, president of Carroll University. "Nowhere is that more evident than this lovely building which we have updated from the inside out."
Carroll University President Cindy Gnadinger cut the ribbon for the renovated Education Hall Wednesday, Sept. 16. Not only has the roof been repaired, but the classroom area indoors has been updated to accommodate the needs of education students with features like a model classroom to prepare for future teachers.
Education Hall was built in 1924. It looks like it has a long life ahead of it.
