The new Student Union is the manifestation of the dreams of many, but no one has been more passionate about delivering this space than Susanne Richardson Teel. Teel is known for going miles beyond what’s required of a Board of Trustees member. Her presence and dedication to the students have been remarkable throughout the years, but on this project, Teel has made her most noteworthy contribution to date: the lead gift for the Student Union!
Her donation was made in honor of Dr. Pat Long, Baker’s 28th president. Her gift will greatly affect phase one of the project, which is the renovation of the dining services space.
Construction on this phase is set to be completed in August.
