We invite you to join us along with the Bristol Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon
cutting ceremony to officially dedicate the new Oval and the redesign of the E.W.
King Library. The ceremony will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 29, 2016 in front
of Bristol Hall. Graduates are invited and encouraged to wear their regalia. The graduating
Class of 2016 will kick off the Spring 2016 Commencement services by taking the inaugural
walk around the new Oval as the sounds of bagpipes ring out across our campus.
Following the dedication, walk, and reception in the library, everyone is encouraged
to attend the Baccalaureate service, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian
Church on the northwest side of the main campus in Bristol, Tenn. Dinner will be available
in McLellan Hall, at normal rates, for those who would like to take advantage of the
The Oval, first bricked in 1962, surrounds the center of our campus and is the
heart of our university community. It serves to invite students into their journey
here at King and to provide a visible symbol of their completion of this journey as
seniors. We are very thankful the complete restoration of this handsome brick walkway
is now complete.
The E.W. King Library’s new open floor plan creates a more modern and welcoming
environment through conceptual change, interior design, layout, and updated furniture.
The goal to have the reimagined library look like the cultural, social, and intellectual
center that it is for all at King was achieved.
We are very grateful to all who have helped to make the restoration of our Oval
possible. We feel it helps us to look toward our 150th anniversary, our sesquicentennial celebration in 2017. Much excitement thus lies
