UC community gathers for grand opening of new Lindner Hall

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, Lindner family join President Pinto, Dean Lewis at podium to celebrate the opening of the new home of the Carl H. Lindner College of Business

Ceremonial shovels signal the start of a significant building project, but scissors are more appropriate for occasions like the one that took place at the new Carl H. Lindner Hall today, Sept. 19. 

The speakers at the grand opening of the new home of the University of Cincinnati's Lindner College of Business included Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, UC President Neville G. Pinto, Dean Marianne Lewis, Craig Lindner and Carl Lindner III. Each of them gave remarks from a podium on the building's grand staircase as onlookers watched from the floor and the mezzanines of each of the three upper levels.

As they, along with Provost Kristi Nelson, UC Foundation President Peter Landgren and their distinguished guests sliced through the white fabric with their ceremonial silver shears, the atrium of Lindner Hall resonated with the sound of cannon fire. The hundreds in attendance cheered as red and black confetti rained down from above.

The building's namesake, Carl H. Lindner Jr., long ago expressed his dream to make UC's business college one of the best in the country. The new building is the latest proof that his vision is becoming reality.
