Lamar University formally dedicated the new Wayne A. Reaud Building, Dec. 2. The dedication program was followed by a reception and public tours of the building.

The three-story building houses administrative offices, marketing, institutional research and reporting, IT functions, reception areas and the Reaud Honors College.

“The Wayne A. Reaud Building is the first new academic building on campus in four decades and it is an absolute game changer in terms of appearance and facilities,” James Marquart, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said in a release.

“The Reaud Building creates a fantastic learning environment and will help us attract the very best students to the university,” Marquart said. “The state-of-the-art classrooms for our honors students, new conference room to showcase speakers and host events, and facilities for campus Information Technology make this multi-use building a wonderful addition to this side of the campus.”

The Reaud Building is located at 985 Jim Gilligan Way in the south end of the Lamar University campus.
