Montclair State’s College Hall Renamed to Honor President Cole

The Montclair State University’s College Hall has been renamed Susan A. Cole Hall.

The iconic 113-year-old Mission Revival structure, the University’s original building, recently reopened after being completely renovated and expanded.

“Rededicating College Hall in Dr. Cole’s name is the most fitting honor the Board of Trustees can bestow,” Francis M. Cuss, chair of the Board of Trustees, said in remarks to about 300 people who attended the rededication, including tours of the building and the unveiling of the building’s new name.

“Her approach to renovating this building, which honors its past, while preparing it to serve the needs of the students of today and tomorrow, exemplifies what she has done for the entire institution for the past 23 years.”

President Cole will conclude her service to the University when the new president begins in August.
