6. 1212 Building demolition starts today
About 100 campus community members attended the farewell program marking the demolition of the 1212 Building today, May 27.
Rev. Michael Class, S.J., provided a reflection. The winning ode honoring the building was written by Bill O’Brien, senior advancement information officer in University Advancement:
1212’s Going Away
(tune: Ta-ra-ra boom de-ay)
I never thought they’d say,
The 1212’s going away,
So gross and grim and gray,
Let’s tear it down today!
Its bleak and dim-lit halls,
The clammy, dusty walls,
The rumbling bathroom stalls,
They won’t be missed at all.
Windows high as summer’s heat,
File cabinets aligned so neat,
Old colleagues always sweet,
Let’s clear it from the street.
The lifts so swift, the stairwells bright,
The ceiling floods at night,
It never fit us right,
Oh, spare us from this fright.
Don’t be glum and don’t be scared,
About the past we’ve shared,
The new place will be swell,
Let’s bid this heap farewell.
The wrecking ball started the demolition immediately following the short ceremony.
The university will build a new student services/external relations building on the 1212 site. The new building will house Undergraduate Admissions, Office of the Registrar, Student Financial Aid, and the Bursar’s Office. In addition, administrative units, including the Offices of the President, Provost, Senior Vice President, General Counsel, University Mission and Identity, Administration, University Advancement and Marketing and Communication, will be located in the new building.
