Lindenwood University’s 11th extension campus, in South O’Fallon, was officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 11, 2011. Lindenwood officials and various individuals with the O’Fallon municipal government and the Chamber of Commerce were on hand to open the new center, which is located at 4701 Highway K, a short distance from Interstate 64.
Master of Ceremonies Brett Barger, Dean of Evening Admissions and Extension Campuses, introduced speakers like Dr. James D. Evans, Lindenwood’s President; Bill Hennessey, mayor of O’Fallon; Erin Williams, of the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce; and Grace Harmon, of the Lindenwood Board of Directors.
