Is Gilman Haunted? Nah, Just a Ghost Town.

To celebrate the next phase of Gilman Hall's major
renovation, the School of Arts and Sciences
hosted a Ceremony of the Keys on June 2. The invitation-only
event was attended by the deans,
members of the school's advisory board, donors and Daniel Coit
Gilman himself. The "spirit" of the
university's first president personally passed on the
building's keys (ceremonial cast-iron ones) to a
representative of the construction firm Bovis Lend Lease. The
construction crews, which began work
last summer, now have free rein of the building as faculty and
staff all moved out by May 30.
