SUU - Guided Tours
Southern Utah University Guided Experience: Portraits of the Great Hall begins at 7:00 pm in the SUU Campus – Gilbert Great Hall. Hunter Alumni Center (351 W University Blvd, Cedar City). Admission is FREE and open to everyone. In celebration of Southern Utah Universitys 125th Birthday, SUU, in partnership with the Visit Cedar City Brian Head is hosting a series of guided experiences. These tours will showcase the University as never before. Exploring the past, present, and future of SUU, these guided experiences are a true celebration of the spirit of our founders. The December event will be an exploration of the stories behind the portraits in the Great Hall of the Hunter Alumni Center.
The founding story of SUU centers not only around the construction of a building but in the lives of those who built it and those who over the years have helped shape its legacy. Since the dedication of that building, Old Main, in October of 1898, the campus has grown to a size undreamed of by those who worked to bring this institution to life. This tour will explore the history of SUU through the lives and stories of those who have been honored by a portrait in our Great Hall.
December’s tour guides will be Paula Mitchell, SUU archivist, and Ryan Paul, assistant professor of history. The tour will be held on Thursday, December 1 at 7 p.m. and again on Wednesday, December 14 at 7 p.m.
To participate in the tour, meet in the Great Hall in the Hunter Alumni Center on the campus of Southern Utah University. The tour will last approximately one hour. SUU Guided Experiences are free and open to all. Come celebrate with us.
