Hibbing Community College Building Naming Celebration

Join Hibbing Community College (HCC) on Friday, October 8th, 2021, in celebrating new names for buildings and common spaces.

The renaming process began with HCC seeking nominations from community members, students, faculty, alumni, and staff. Historically, campus buildings have been labelled by letter; however, with HCC having completed a major renovation project, the college recognized an opportunity to assign more meaningful names to its buildings and common spaces. As nominations were received, an HCC committee consisting of HCC faculty, staff, administrations, students, alumni, and community members made the final naming recommendations, which were approved by the chancellor of the Minnesota State system.

New memorable names will now offer clarity for students and visitors while also honoring HCC’s century-long history of providing affordable higher education for the Iron Range.

The Building Naming Celebration will take place on Friday October 8th, 2021, and will honor individuals and groups that have made a lasting impact on the Hibbing Community College. The public is welcome to attend.

Schedule of Events

4:00 p.m.  Welcome & Presentation

5:00 p.m.  Ribbon Cutting & Social Hour

6:30 p.m.  Athletics Recognition & Hall of Fame Inductees
