Luddy Hall – Name an Auditorium Chair

The flagship 160 seat auditorium in Luddy Hall is designed for collaboration using emerging technology. As attendees at a young school with a rich history, our students should know that our alumni and friends have their backs. For $1,000, you can name a seat in our auditorium. You will be recognized with a nameplate honoring you. Make your gift now. After making your gift, email Alan Goodno with the text for your name plate.

Your Questions. Our Answers.
  • When will Luddy Hall and the auditorium be complete?

    The building is scheduled to open for classes before the spring 2018 semester.

  • What can I include on the nameplate?

    Whatever you would like (within reason)! We recommend including your formal name, degree, and class year (Jordan Garcia, MS '99) or honoring a favorite professor/staff member. This is also a great opportunity to pay tribute to a loved one and engrave a nameplate to read "In memory of..." Our development staff will work with you to ensure the nameplate fulfills your wishes.

  • Will I be informed the location of my chair?

    Yes! Later in the construction project, we will be sure to let you know where your chair and nameplate is located in the auditorium.

  • What classes will be held in the auditorium?

    The space will be utilized by our programs of our School - computer science, informatics, information science, intelligent systems engineering, and library science. The exact class schedule has yet to be determined. However, it is a space for all.
