  Kent, Sussex Alumni Host Loockerman Hall Open House

 

 

DSU alumni Phil Sadler, Martha Hopkins and Sandra Sutton also helped host the open house.

Kent and Sussex County chapters of the DSU Alumni Association held an open house on Dec. 6, 8 and 10 at the Historic Loockerman Hall.
 
Students, alumni and other visitors were able to experience the inside of the historic Loockerman edifice – which was built circa 1770 and is the only original structure from the University’s 1891 beginning – which served as the center of campus activities during the institution’s almost first 30 years of existence.
 
History about Loockerman Hall and the institution were presented by Carlos Holmes, and there was also musical performances given by the DSU Concert Choir’s Male Quartet.
 
In addition to the alumni mentioned in the accompanying photos, DSU alumni Nate Delesline and his wife Vynella help to decorate Loockerman Hall for the event.
