On Thursday, October 1, 2015, Lehigh’s Campus Square was officially dedicated as Farrington Square in honor of former Lehigh president Greg Farrington who, with his wife Jean, inspired the center that is considered the gateway to the South Side. The ceremony included the unveiling of a plaque that honors their contribution to a vibrant area that combines student living, the university bookstore, shops, and restaurants. The dedication was one of the first events of the university’s four-day 150th celebration and opened with a performance by the university’s Glee Club. Board of Trustees Chair Brad E. Scheler ’74 ’05P ’08P ’09PG offered opening remarks, welcoming the Farringtons back to Lehigh, and introduced former board chair Ron Ulrich ’67, who also co-chaired Lehigh’s successful Shine Forever capital campaign helping to pave the way for the development of Campus Square. In addition to Lehigh’s 12th president Greg Farrington, Lehigh’s 14th president John D. Simon was present to honor the Farringtons’ contributions. Photos by John Kish IV and Christa Neu.
