Noon - DEDICATION OF SCHRIMSHAW HEALTH SCIENCES HALL (formerly Ricketts)

Home of Sage’s Occupational and Physical Therapy programs, the Scrimshaw Health Sciences Hall recognizes Sage’s ninth president.

More recently, the project focused on first floor interior updates and windows, as well as façade and landscaping renovations extending to the neighboring Manning Hall. The $100,000 improvements are the result of gift contributions from many alumnae and community members to honor Scrimshaw’s nine years of leadership and service to Sage.
