Staff members plan to move into the house, located near downtown Rolla at 1100 N. Pine St., during the winter intercession. Furnishings should be in place by early 2015. Watch construction crews put the finishing touches on the house at mineralumni.com/house.

The campus will host an official dedication ceremony and grand opening for the Hasselmann Alumni House in conjunction with Missouri S&T’s St. Pat’s Celebration on Saturday, March 14, 2015.

Fundraising for the house is ongoing and naming opportunities are still available. For gifts of $25,000 or more, the Koeppel Challenge will match $1 for every $2 contributed. You can also still make a gift to the Hasselmann House registry at mineralumni.com/hahregistry.
