We are so excited about the grand opening of The John and Kathy Schreiber Center, the new home of The Quinlan School of Business. Opening this fall, the Schreiber center boasts innovative design and cutting edge technology with sustainability in mind. The new Loyola building is located on the Water Tower campus, on the corner of State and Pearson Streets — right in the heart of bustling Chicago. A generous gift from John and Kathy Schreiber, this building hopes to transform the way education is delivered. Mr. Schreiber graduated from Loyola University Chicago’s undergraduate business school in 1968, and the gift is dedicated to F. Virgil Boyd and Raymond C. Baumhart, S.J., both of whom provided inspiration and shaped his undergrad career. In addition, the Quinlan School of Business is ranked Number 1 for its undergraduate business program, and Number 3 for its part time MBA program in Chicago by U.S. News & World Report.
Upon entering the 10 story facility, guests will find the Great Stairs, located at the base of the Schreiber Center. These stairs feature bleacher-like seating to facilitate meet ups, a studying space, or a spot for presentations. The 4th and 6th floors contain state of the art classrooms and breakout rooms, which are naturally lit due to the system of atria that also harness natural ventilation throughout the building. The Great Hall, located on the top floors, will serve as Loyola’s newest premier event space downtown. As a 2600 square foot multipurpose room, it will host events for Quinlan and the Chicago business community. Finally, at the top floor, Schreiber Center visitors will find the Board Room, an elegant space enhanced with cityscape views.
The grand opening is September 15, 2015. For more information click here.
