The Baker School of Business Breaks Ground on Bastin Hall
The Citadel broke ground this past weekend on Bastin Hall, the future home of the Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business. Bastin Hall is named after Rick and Mary Lee Bastin, whose very generous gift started the fundraising for the building. Rick is a member of the Class of 1965.
The 44,000 square feet building will feature state-of-the-art features including:
- Innovation, sales, and financial leadership labs
- 8 flat and tiered classrooms
- 4 interview rooms
- 2,100 square feet common area
- A roof top terrace
Bastin Hall will enable the Baker School of Business to meet the needs of future entrepreneurs and business leaders by providing facilities that supplement academic coursework with practical, experiential learning.
Officials anticipate early site work to begin in November 2017. Construction is scheduled to start in March 2018, with classes beginning in the fall 2019.
