When the new building for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences is finished next year, Keith and Leonard halls will be torn down. For more than four decades—from the ’40s to the ’70s—Keith housed the campus laboratory school. During most of that time, kindergartners to 10th graders studied there, and countless collegians did practice teaching.

On October 18, former Keith students, student teachers, and faculty members will gather to say goodbye to the building. A committee of former students, in conjunction with the IUP Alumni Relations office, is planning an on-site reunion.
Invitations are being mailed to former students for whom addresses could be obtained. Event registration is required. Former students and student teachers who want to register or get more information should send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-937-2487. Even those who can’t be on campus in October are invited to send memories to Kathy Rend Armstrong, 117 Greenview Drive, Indiana, PA 15701.
