Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry will join officials from the University of Saint Francis to cut the ribbon on the university’s new downtown campus. The new facilities include the USF Business Center and the Music Technology Center.
Festivities will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a blessing and ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by an open house and block party.
The USF Business Center is the new home of the Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership, the university’s Media Entrepreneurship Training in the Arts program and the Risk Management and Insurance program.
The Music Technology Center was designed with help from Fort Wayne-based Sweetwater and features state-of-the-art audio engineering equipment, performance spaces and recording studios.
The University of Saint Francis recently received $2.8 million in Regional Cities funding for the downtown project. The university says the amount covers about 20 percent of the total cost of the project.
