“It was also important to showcase the features and benefits of the new building,” she continued. “I want all alumni and friends of the school to see the plans for the building and to see what features could bear their names, if they so choose. We’re all so excited about this expansion and want to share that excitement with the Vanderbilt community so they can see what they’re helping us build.”
