Fenn Tower renovated and rededicated

Historic Fenn Tower, built as the National Town & Country Club in 1930 and once the home of the YMCA's Fenn College, has received a major renovation for use as a dorm for Cleveland State students. The Tower was recently rumored to be slated for demolition, but an outcry from alumni gave it this life as a residential building once again (it seems many universities try to tear down their original building, only to be forced to do a 180 like this).

I'm a CSU Student and an Urban Studies major with a focus on Historic Preservation and I'm very grateful to the University for saving this great bit of History.
