FREDERICK, Md.—The $5.5 million renovation of Hood College’s Tatem Arts Center is complete, and it will be dedicated Oct. 7 at 1 p.m.
Price Auditorium and the attic were reconfigured to add an extra 7,000 square feet of space to the building. The psychology and counseling programs have moved to the third floor, and the moot courtroom has been constructed for the law and criminal justice program. A new, handicapped-accessible entrance and an elevator have been added to the east side of the building.
The moot court is a continuation of Hood College’s emphasis on experiential learning and a critical feature of the law and criminal justice major. Students prepare and deliver oral arguments, draft legal briefs and learn courtroom decorum. The courtroom is a classroom that is used on a daily basis for both trial and appellate advocacy.
The financial supporters for the moot court are: Virginia Procino Hartmann ’72 and Thomas W. Hartmann, Mary Alice Peeling ’76, Ellen S. Sacks ’70 and Henry J. Widmaier, Christina Monroe Smith ’71 and Anthony J. Smith in memory of the Honorable Donald H. Monroe and Mary Kinsman Monroe ’47, and Marcia Heister Wilcox ’78 and Alfred H. Wilcox.
