Youngker Hall takes center stage

  Feature Photo  

The first new construction on the Hilltop in almost 20 years, Youngker Hall, houses Cornell’s 266-seat Kimmel Theatre, which had already hosted three mainstage performances, two student play festivals, and two classes by the time the building was dedicated in April as Charles Youngker ’42 and Virginia “Ginny” Bolton Youngker ’43 (below) looked on.

The completion of Youngker Hall leaves only Armstrong Hall as the unfinished piece of the fine arts project. Fund-raising has wrapped up on the $16.3 million campaign; the renovation of Armstrong for the music and theater departments is scheduled to be completed this fall.
