A gift from the James Graham Brown Foundation helped Simmons to purchase a building from the Sons of the American Revolution at 1000 S. 4th Street.

Kevin Cosby, president of Simmons College, said, “Our school is growing exponentially, and with a growing school there’s a need for more space.”

The new building will allow the college to expand its library and administrative offices, and provide additional learning spaces and resources for students.
