How many places can you think of where you can take classes, be active and meet a group of great people? Is Gentile Hall on that list? Well, maybe it should be. This year, Gentile Hall is celebrating its 10th anniversary. It would be nice to take a moment to appreciate what this building has done for the UMPI campus as well as the community.
