Ole Miss alumni and friends will see a new Triplett Alumni Center within in the next couple of years. The present center will be razed and an impressive three-story building constructed, with the first two floors dedicated to meeting spaces and the third to offices. A large balcony will face the Grove, providing a beautiful area for wedding receptions and other special events
Architectural plans call for a stunning, classic red brick and white-columned building, a $30 million project that will ultimately serve as a welcome center for people visiting the Oxford campus. Next door, the E.F. Yerby Center also will be demolished, leaving a footprint for the four-story, more than $70 million project to be home to the Patterson School of Accountancy — creating a commanding entrance to Grove Loop from University Avenue.
“We look forward to having a new alumni complex that will meet the needs of our growing alumni base, says Ole Miss Alumni Association CEO Kirk Purdom. “With the support of the Triplett family we are off to a great start in making this new center a jewel on the Grove.”
