Bastin Opens for Business

Bastin Hall, The Citadel’s first academic building to be constructed in three decades, is the gleaming new home for the Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business.

A state-of-the-art academic facility, Bastin Hall was made possible thanks to a $6 million gift from Rick Bastin, ’65, and his wife Mary Lee through The Citadel Foundation. In addition to the Bastins, more than 50 other individuals, families, businesses and alumni classes stepped forward to name spaces within the building.

Some of the building’s other notable features include an advising center, a financial services center, an entrepreneurship innovation lab and a student success suite as well as technology-equipped classrooms, gathering spaces and breakout rooms.

Located on Hagood Avenue near the football stadium, the 44,000-square-foot building officially opened for classes in January.
