Raising $10 Million for Scholarships
In celebration of Lincoln Hall’s long-awaited renovation, have your name—or the names of those you wish to honor— memorialized in Lincoln Hall by making a gift to the college’s scholarship fund.
Planners for the historic Lincoln Hall renovation knew they were aiming high when they set out to earn “gold” certification through the U.S. Green Building Council’s environmental sustainability standards. Not only did the project earn gold status, but it did one better.
Watch a video of the Lincoln Hall Rededication ceremony that took place on Tuesday, February 12, 2013. This ceremony, on Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, was exactly 100 years to the day of the building’s original dedication.
“I currently teach English at New Trier Township High School, and with all the technology in the classroom—projectors, computers, iPads—I still think back to my first day in my first classroom in Lincoln Hall with its couple of pieces of chalk, eraser, and blackboard, and marvel at what a gift it is to be a teacher.”
