Instead of a ground-breaking, Augustana College held a "shelf smashing" this week to celebrate the next major building project on campus. Renovation of the 70 year old Bergendoff Hall will cost 10 to 12 million dollars.
Executive Vice President Kent Barnds says the first phase, beginning this summer, will focus on the music education department.
"The space that used to be Potter Hall, which had been our theater, will be converted into two new classrooms and rehearsal spaces. And then also a magnificent, small performance space that we're really excited to introduce."
