Dressing Up ‘Old Main’

Following upgrades to Main Hall’s exterior in recent years — including a new roof, windows and masonry work — the interior of the historic building is getting some much needed attention.

“Main Hall represents the face of the institution and it is so important that if positively reflects the best of the history and tradition of Regis,” said Bill Fortune, RC ’69, and trustee.

Backed by the President’s Excellence Fund, supported by generous donors like Fortune, the $1.2 million project has revitalized the heavily trafficked second floor. Improvements include a new ceiling, lighting and carpet. It’s part of a multi-phased project that will continue through 2020. Upgrades are planned for the other floors of the Pink Palace as well.

“The building is an historic and iconic symbol of Regis and a cherished space much beloved by many. It is important that we invest in upgrading and improving it for the future,” said President John P. Fitzgibbons, S.J.
