On his 96th birthday, June 23, 2006, President Gordon B. Hinckley helped break ground for a new building on BYU campus that will bear his name. The Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center will be a “front gate” to welcome visitors and former students to campus and to introduce people to the mission of BYU.
