New Buildings Benefit Academic Life


Courtney Becker | September 7, 2017

The construction of O’Neill Hall and Corbett Family Hall marks a new era for the music, psychology and anthropology departments at Notre Dame.

Both part of the Campus Crossroads project, O’Neill Hall will be the new headquarters for music and sacred music, while Corbett Family Hall will house the psychology and anthropology departments.

John McGreevy, professor of history and dean of the College of Arts and Letters, said the completed project will be able to serve the Notre Dame community for generations to come.

“We really view this as a great day for the College of Arts and Letters, and for Notre Dame,” he said on a press tour conducted Aug. 11. “[These are] two spectacular new buildings that are going to advance research and teaching capacity of our students and faculty for a hundred years.”

The new facilities are an exciting step for the College of Arts and Letters, McGreevy said.

“I am a historian, so I’m neither a psychologist, anthropologist or musician, but these are my colleagues, as well, and to see them be able to have the opportunity to do the best possible work and to train their students in the best possible way — it’s magical,” McGreevy said.
