Dean Thomas Blomberg and the faculty and staff at the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice are proud to announce the recent Eppes Hall renovation has received a preservation award. Eppes Hall was recognized by the jury of the 2014 Tallahassee/Leon County Historic Preservation Awards for outstanding achievement in the Civic/Community Resource Preservation category.

This achievement will be recognized at the 2014 Tallahassee/Leon County Historic Preservation Awards Ceremony, Thursday, May 8, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Florida Historic Capitol Museum. The event is closed to the public.

The renovation of historic Eppes Hall began in late 2012. Major renovations were made to preserve the original building’s integrity and to install modern learning technologies to enhance the student experience at Florida State University. The College worked closely with experts from Architects Lewis & Whitlock and FSU during the renovation and is now home to the College of Criminology & Criminal Justice and the Center for Criminology and Public Policy Research.
