ICYMI: In Case You Missed It
Residence Hall is officially Schilling Hall
After approval from the Kansas Board of Regents on March 12, the building simply known as Residence Hall for the last 20 years on campus will now be called Schilling Hall.
 

The change comes after several students expressed their confusion over the literally named Residence Hall, saying an actual name would make it easier to distinguish between it and the other residence hall, Harbin Hall. The Student Governing Association then solicited name suggestions from the student body, and the K-State Salina Student Senate voted on the final decision. Schilling Hall was chosen as a nod to the past when the campus was first Schilling Air Force Base and later Schilling Institute.

 

Once Dean Fitzsimmons approved the residence hall name change, it was submitted to the Kansas Board of Regents to become official.

 
The K-State Salina Residence Hall Association will be offering a walk-through to the community of one of the upgraded rooms in Harbin Hall on March 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Residence Hall Association is asking for feedback on the current upgrade as they move forward with renovations to other rooms.
 

Changes to residence life publications and housing contracts with the new Schilling Hall name will begin immediately and the sign in front of the hall is expected to change sometime in May. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is also planned, but no date has been set yet.
