Cole Hall Museum Unveiled

Posted by wlpo on February 13, 2012

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) – The public is getting its first look at a new museum at Northern Illinois University’s Cole Hall.

The building was the site of a deadly 2008 shooting and reopened last month after four years. The building was given a $6 million renovation and has a new high-tech classroom, dozens of computer stations and the museum. An open house at the Anthropology Museum was held Sunday.

On Feb. 14, 2008, a former NIU student stepped onto a lecture stage during a geology class in Cole Hall and began shooting. Five students were killed including Julianna Gehant of Mendota.
