I had a walk today through the former Rockland Building, a commercial and professional space constructed in 1989, which has been utterly transformed into Roessner Hall, an up-to-date classroom and office building. Named for Albright trustee Jack Roessner '61, the College's most generous benefactor, the completely renewed building will house the Center for Business and Civic Leadership, which will, in turn, comprise Albright’s departments of economics and business, accounting and political science, the Center for Excellence in Local Government, the Center for Civic and Global Engagement, and the Office of Accelerated Degree Programs.
The classrooms are comfortable and well equipped, the offices are spacious, but what really distinguishes Roessner Hall from other classroom buildings is the square footage devoted social space, spiffy lounge areas that will accommodate scores of students at a time.
