COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The College of Social Work at the University of South Carolina is dedicating a newly-renovated building that brings students and faculty together for the first time.
The dedication of the building known as Hamilton College takes place Friday at 10:30 a.m.
Before the $17.5 million renovation of building, the college's 70 faculty, staff and 600 social work students were scattered among six locations.
Hamilton College was built in 1942 and used as classroom space for an adjoining naval armory. The U.S. Navy had begun extensive training programs at the university, so it was named after Paul Hamilton, a former South Carolina governor who also served as Secretary of the Navy.
