In 1899, more than 2,000 people gathered at the site of Suomi College’s first building to witness and take part in the laying of the cornerstone. 123 years later, Finlandia University once again welcomes its community from near and far to be a part of history.
Join us on Saturday, July 30 as we paint the Hoover Center and restore a handful of Old Main’s most timeworn sandstones. Stop by for a little while, or the whole day, but don’t miss the chance to leave your mark on campus by preserving these historic buildings.
For those interested, donations can also be made at https://finlandia-donation.paperform.co/ or mailed-in checks sent to Advancement, 601 Quincy Street, Hancock MI 49930 to support the project.
