ROSEBURG, Ore. – Umpqua Community College has named the new building being constructed on the site of a shooting that claimed nine lives in 2015.

The building will be called Tapʰòytʰaʼ Hall (pronounced du-poi’-tuh), which is derived from a Takelma language word that means “to be blessed and to prosper.”

UCC officials said they wanted to use a Native American word to recognize the area’s history and to honor the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians.

Snyder Hall was demolished after the tragedy in October 2015.

The nearby fountain will now be named after Ralph Snyder, one of the school’s original administrators.

The building will be dedicated on March 23.
