Oxford College recently hosted a campus-wide grand opening for the newly renovated Pierce Hall.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other guests checked out the new space at an informal open house on Feb. 22. The event emphasized Oxford's academic mission and gathered Atlanta campus colleagues and local officials to see the newest innovations made to a historic campus building.

Oxford previously used Pierce Hall for instruction in science until 2015 when a new 57,500-square-foot science building opened.
