At Glass Hall, the home of the Missouri State University College of Business, copious amounts of glass, natural lighting and soothing colors give off a transparent and sleek feel. The academic building underwent a $33.8 million renovation and expansion before the project was dedicated in October 2017. Staff offices mix seamlessly with classrooms, open and closed areas for studying and projects, and a four-floor open stairwell.

“Lightening it up and all of the glass created an inviting environment,” COB Dean David Meinert says. “Before we renovated, everyone always asked where the glass at Glass Hall was.”
