The International School of Minnesota held a festive Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Celebration on Thursday, August 14, for its new Residence Hall, constructed by Shingobee Builders.
School officials and international trade officials spoke to the importance of the new facility to the school’s ability to attract international students.
Shingobee constructed the new three-story, 20,000 square foot building between July 2013 and June 2014. A unique partnership with MN OSHA (Minnesota Occupational Safety & Health Administration) was utilized to ensure a high level of safety during the construction process.
The facility will provide housing for 32 students and two supervisors, as well as a theater, fitness room, game room, and study/social areas.
A Certificate of Appreciation was presented to ISM Director Christi Seiple-Cole by David Edmiston of the U.S. Department of Commerce, recognizing the International School of Minnesota for its support in promoting Minnesota as a world class education destination for international students.
ISM Director Christi Seiple-Cole, Property Manager Trent Mahr, and SABIS Vice President of Operations George Saad cut the ceremonial ribbon to celebrate the opening of the Residence Hall, with international trade officials looking on.
