Hudson Valley Community College will celebrate the official opening of three new features at its campus: the Administration Building, the Teaching Gallery and the Dr. Frank J. Morgan Clock Tower.

The three-story, $8.4 million Administration Building features seven state-of-the-art classrooms and brings numerous campus departments such as Human Resources, Purchasing, Payroll and Comptroller under one roof.

Hudson Valley’s Teaching Gallery, located in the Administration Building, is a new spacious, two-story location for the college’s art gallery. The Teaching Gallery will allow students in Hudson Valley’s new Gallery Management degree program to plan and market exhibits while providing the Capital Region community with an attractive venue for public art exhibits.

The Dr. Frank J. Morgan Clock Tower is a 30-foot structure built in the center of campus to honor one of Hudson Valley’s most distinguished and beloved professors and administrators. Dr. Morgan, who died in 2000, was with Hudson Valley from 1961 to 1985, serving as dean for 16 years. Known for his thoughtful advice, Dr. Morgan helped countless students, including former Hudson Valley President John Buono ‘68 and Assemblyman Roy McDonald ’67. His widow, Anne Morgan, will speak at the Clock Tower dedication.

DIRECTIONS: Enter the Hudson Valley Community College campus via North Road (the entrance with the electronic sign on Route 4). Take your first right into the parking lot. The new Administration Building is the large building at the edge of the parking lot to your left.
