The University of Georgia is holding a ribbon cutting Thursday for a building that will provide living, classroom and study space for students and faculty in the nation’s capital.
The three-story Capitol Hill building, named Delta Hall, was formerly an office building. Since being purchased by the university it has undergone renovations that make it capable of housing 32 students who are interning and studying in the District of Columbia as well as faculty and staff. The inaugural class of students moved into the building on Massachusetts Avenue in January.
The building is named Delta Hall in recognition of a $5 million grant from the Delta Air Lines Foundation.
