Lehigh University photographer Christa Neu takes us inside the Clayton University Center at Packer Hall at the start of renovations earlier this year.
The iconic building was the first structure specifically built for Lehigh in 1868 by university founder Asa Packer. It was expanded and renovated in 1956.
Launched by a donation from Kevin L. Clayton ’84 ’13P and Lisa A. Clayton ’13P, the Clayton UC is undergoing an extensive renovation and reconfiguration that will create a dynamic new environment for undergraduate and graduate student life while preserving the building’s historic grandeur.
The project promises to transform the student experience and restore the Clayton UC as a community crossroads.
