    OSWEGO -- SUNY Oswego and State University officials, students and representatives of the Johnson family will gather Tuesday, Sept. 30, for the official rededication of the college's Johnson Hall.

    Members of the campus and local community are invited to participate in the rededication ceremony at 4 p.m. at the south entrance of the building. Afterward, residents of the hall will host an open house and tours.

    Now home of the college's award-winning First-Year Residential Experience for freshmen, the building was named for Harold B. Johnson, one-time chair of the college's Board of Visitors (now the College Council) and editor and president of the Watertown Daily Times, when it opened in 1958.

    The building has been closed for the past two years for extensive renovations, which included the addition of a fourth floor and a connection to Lakeside Dining Hall. The $13.4 million renovation increased the capacity from 190 to 240 residential students.
