Appalachian State University cut the ribbon on the Connect NC Bond’s first completed project on Friday, Sept. 21. The Leon Levine Hall of Health Sciences building was completed on time and on budget. Levine Hall is Appalachian’s newest and largest academic building to date, and its design facilitates innovative and collaborative learning for thousands of students.

The five-story, 203,000-square-foot Levine Hall was the first project funded by the Connect NC Bond, a bond approved by the citizens of North Carolina in 2016 by a 2-to-1 margin.
