DeFriece Place Receives a Makeover

The Pauline Massengill DeFriece Place, otherwise known as the Admissions House on King’s main campus, is receiving a much-needed makeover this summer.

DeFriece Place was originally built in the mid-70s as a residence for the president of the college. The renovations taking place are to the first floor of DeFriece Place. The building has been used for a variety of offices over the years but has been home to King’s Office of Admissions since the late-90s.

Micah Crews, associate vice president of Enrollment Management, said, “I am excited about the renovations to the DeFriece Place and the admissions office. The plans will include a more inviting environment for visiting students and their families. The renovation will enhance the initial experience that every visitor has on campus. 

The makeover focuses on the main level of the house. Included is a new spacious entry with a new reception room, a conference room, and comfortable lounge. The porch will also be refurbished. 

The completion date for the renovations is anticipated in mid-summer.
