Join us for the final beam placement atop the new 113,000-square-foot Gordon Ford College of Business building. 

In June 2023, WKU broke ground on the new College of Business building. The Beam Raising Ceremony marks another milestone in the project and is similar to the traditional “Topping Out” ceremony. Members of the WKU community, alumni, and friends are invited to leave their mark and sign the final steel beam before it is lifted into place. 

Thursday, April 18 | 2:00 PM Opening Remarks

Beginning at 1:30 PM, attendees will have the opportunity to sign the beam.

Construction entrance on Normal Street | Parking available in the Regents Hall lot.

The event will take place on an active construction site with uneven terrain. Guests should wear appropriate closed toe shoes. No hard hat required. For more information on the new Gordon Ford College of Business building, visit www.wku.edu/businesscollege.
