IU East celebrated one of its biggest nights on Aug. 19 by opening its brand new Student Events and Activities Center and announcing the largest gift ever from an alumnus.
As part of the celebration, Lingle Court was named to recognize the $700,000 gift by Paul and Pat Lingle. The Lingle name will be permanently etched on a plaque in the building and appear on the Red Wolves court. Lingle Court will also provide space to host student activities such as concerts and pep rallies as well as a variety of community events.
President Michael A. McRobbie said the Student Events and Activities Center would enhance the vitality and functionality of the campus, and provide students with opportunities for engagement and leadership. He expressed gratitude to the donors and community for their support of IU East and for the center.
