Vincennes University said goodbye to one of its oldest residence halls.

Harrison Hall was built in 1967 and named after University founder and 9th U.S. President William Henry Harrison.

The residence hall was severely damaged during a wind storm in April of 2020.

For most of its existence, the building housed male students, before being demolished earlier this month.

The Vice-President of Financial Services says this was an exceptional spot on campus, and whatever is built in its place will be state-of-the-art.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
