The president’s home (Heritage House) recently underwent remodeling for current university president Mark Rudin.

“Once the decision was made for the President and his family to live in the Heritage Home,” Vice President for Business and Administration Alicia Currin said, “we knew we would need to complete renovations to convert the facility back to a family residence.”

The remodel began three months after President Rudin and his family moved in August 2018 into the Heritage House, though it did not consist of a complete renovation. According to Currin, the changes mainly consisted of updating the home with new wallpaper, flooring, and paint.

“The remodel is basically complete,” Currin said. “They are currently working on a few minor items.  There will continue to be routine maintenance items that need to be addressed.”

President Rudin and his family stayed in Prairie Crossing Apartments, where former President Keck previously stayed during a previous remodel, which started in November 2018. According to Currin, the time spent in the student apartments was pleasant.

“The Rudins enjoyed living in Prairie Crossing Apartments,” Currin said, “but it was fairly quiet most of the time because it was between semesters.”

Prior to being the home for President Rudin, the Heritage House has been lived in by former presidents Ray Keck, James Gee, Samuel Henry Whitley, and Whitney Halladay. The home eventually became an office space, later holding the departments for Alumni affairs, Honors college, and Institutional effectiveness. Previous renovations took place during Kecks stay in the home. According to Currin, President Rudin appreciates the current changes to the home.

“He looks forward to making the house a true home for himself and his family,” Currin said, “as well as a gathering place for university events.”
