The event is free and open to the public. Guests should RSVP by Friday, Nov. 10, by contacting the College’s Special Events Office at 607-753-5453.

The Brown Auditorium has been a center of cultural life for the campus and the community for many years and has undergone a number of renovations to keep up-to-date with changing technology.

A major renovation completed in 1989 was made possible by a major gift from alumnus John Fantauzzi ’58, M ’60. At the request of Fantauzzi, the space was named in honor of Ralph Adams Brown, the College’s first SUNY distinguished teaching professor, who taught history at the College from 1947 to 1975.
