Ivy Tech unveils Moravec Hall to the public today

Ivy Tech Community College Columbus Campus will be celebrating the official opening of its new building, Moravec Hall, today.

The festivities will be from 4 to 6 today at the facility off of Central Avenue. There will be a ribbon cutting followed by tours of the building.

Dr. Stephen Combs, chancellor at Ivy Tech Columbus:

Moravec Hall opened this summer replacing the aging Poling Hall, which has been torn down to make way for new landscaping and amenities. The nearly $33 million dollar Moravec Hall is a nearly 81 thousand square foot building with state-of-the art technology and modern simulation laboratories.

The building is named in honor of local businessman Tony Moravec and his family.

Combs explains Moravec’s involvement with the school.

The recently renovated Columbus Learning Center will also be highlighted during the ribbon cutting ceremony.
