Campbell Hall Groundbreaking Heralds New Chapter for Rose Hill









Campbell Hall Groundbreaking Heralds
New Chapter for Rose Hill

Friends, family and University trustees gathered at the Rose Hill campus on Thursday, April 24, to break ground on Campbell Hall, a 90,000-square-foot residence hall that will open in June 2010.

The building is named for Robert E. Campbell, CBA ’55, and Joan M. Campbell, in recognition of their $10 million gift to Fordham last December.

Speaking to a crowd of about 100 guests gathered under a white tent, John Tognino, chairman of the Board of Trustees, said that the Campbells’ gift, one of the largest in Fordham history, ensured an enduring legacy that made future students their heirs.

Ready to toss ceremonial shovelfuls of dirt are (l to r): John N. Tognino, Chairman of the Fordham Board of Trustees, Joan M. Campbell, Robert E. Campbell, CBA ’55, and Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham.
