On Friday, May 10, disturbed material was discovered in Gist Hall during a check of the building’s systems following reports of heating issues. The substance is presumed to be asbestos and as a result, Gist Hall closed several weeks to ensure the health and safety of students and employees. Gist Hall re-opened after receiving final air clearance test results.
