UA Buildings Renamed for Recognition
Two individuals were recently recognized for their contributions to the UA.
The dining hall in the Northwest Quad residence hall was named the Roberta Fulbright Dining Hall at the Northwest Quad, according to a news release.
Members of the UA Board of Trustees renamed the dining hall saying, “with this naming, we honor Ms. Fulbright for the legacy she created and the resulting benefits that have accrued and continue at the university and in the city for Fayetteville,” according to a news release.
Fulbright is the mother of J. William Fulbright, who served as a university president and a U.S. senator.
The Engineering Hall will be renamed John A. White Jr. Engineering Hall in honor of former Chancellor White.
White is a UA alumnus and served as chancellor from 1997 to 2008, according to the Office of the Chancellor.
White still teaches as a Distinguished Professor in the department of industrial engineering.
UA officials have plans to renovate the historic John A. White Jr. Engineering Hall during the next few years. The building was built in 1927, according to a news release.
