Engineering students at the University of Virginia now have a little more room to learn their craft.
School officials toured a brand new building to be dedicated on Friday. Several people involved in the building's construction were there including Gregory Olsen.
Olsen, a 1971 graduate of UVa, is the lead benefactor of the building which honors two of his professors. One of them was Doris Wilsdorf who taught there for more than 40 years.
"I am immensely grateful because I do not feel in a sense that it is justified. On the other hand, who am I? I can't very well argue, said Professor Emeritus Doris Wilsdorf.
Wilsdorf will be returning to teach for a semester next fall.
