Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie rededicated IU Bloomington's Owen Hall and Jordan Hall after the renovations to the buildings was completed. Owen Hall is located in the Old Crescent—the historic core of the campus. The renovation of Owen Hall, which was largely vacant, provides the administrative offices of the College of Arts and Sciences with office space that keeps the deans and administrators at the center of many of the academic departments and programs of the College. Jordan Hall, home to the Department of Biology, is not part of the Old Crescent, but it is a part of what is considered to be the historic core of the campus. The building and its laboratories were updated to modern standards.
