The Response Restore Alexander Hall Series

The Alexander Hall story
Since its groundbreaking in 1891, Alexander Hall has held a special place in the hearts and minds of Seattle Pacific students, alumni, and faculty and staff members.

Funding to Restore Alexander Hall Now Complete

Updated January 14, 2016

Thanks to an outpouring of prayers and financial gifts and pledges from alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of Seattle Pacific University, the $6.2 million fundraising goal to restore historic Alexander Hall has successfully concluded.

More than 500 individual donations were received, more than 300 from Seattle Pacific alumni alone. Not only is Alexander Hall SPU’s first building, it is the place that first nurtured the University’s vision of scholarship in service to the world. It is held dear in the hearts of generations of students and professors who lived, learned, and taught within its walls. Thank you to all who have assured the landmark’s preservation for many more generations to come.
