Countdown to the Quad
The clock is ticking. In just a few weeks, Xavier’s campus will be forever changed with the opening of two new buildings that will revolutionize the student learning experience and dramatically enhance the campus environment. The two new buildings—Steven and Dolores Smith Hall, the new home of the Williams College of Business, and the Conaton Learning Commons—collectively form the James E. Hoff, S.J., Academic Quad. A grand opening is planned for August.
