Maclean House, the home of the Alumni Council since 1968, will receive a major interior facelift as it takes on an expanded role as a welcoming center for alumni returning to campus. “We want this to feel like their home away from home,” said Henry Von Kohorn ’66, the outgoing president of the Alumni Association. Located on Nassau Street just a few hundred feet from Nassau Hall, the building was constructed in 1756 as the home of the college president. Among the renovations that will be completed before Reunions next year are new HVAC, lighting, and fire-safety systems; painting; and comfortable new furnishings; iPads offering campus and town information will be available. Offices for the Alumni Council staff on the second and third floors also will be modernized. University architect Ron McCoy *80 said the work will “respect and reinforce the history” of the building while offering a brighter, livelier appearance.
