Five alumni who joined together to name seminar rooms in historic Stanhope Hall, home to the Center for African American Studies, gathered on March 11 to dedicate the Hobson-Rogers Seminar Room on the first floor and the Barfield-Johnson Seminar Room on the second. President Christopher L. Eisgruber thanked the group for their commitment to education, diversity, and civic engagement.
