Mulder Hall was dedicated on the LSUA campus.
In a Tuesday morning dedication ceremony, the Multi-Purpose Academic Center officially became Mulder Hall.
Howard and Eloise Mulder were longtime supporters of LSUA as well as founding members of the LSUA Foundation. In 2001, they were honored for their service to the university by being awarded the LSUA Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor bestowed to anyone by the university.
More recently, the Mulder Charitable Trust donated $6.2 million to the LSUA Foundation.
Tuesday’s dedication is a way to honor two people who have given so much to LSUA.
Mulder Hall is home to the Richard Gwartney Theatre, state-of-the-art classrooms, conference rooms and offices. It is the newest building on campus and was completed in 2011.
Eloise Mulder studied at the University of Colorado, while Howard Mulder graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in mechanical and aeronautical engineering.
Eloise Mulder passed away in 2000. Howard Mulder died in 2011.
