Sat., June 3
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. The building improvements, which began during the Centennial Year, included updates to the second floor and interior facilities systems. 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.
