KALAMAZOO (WKZO) --  Western Michigan University will hold a formal "topping out" ceremony for their new medical school downtown this afternoon.

 The former Pfizer research building which is undergoing a 68-million dollar renovation and expansion, is scheduled to be completed next June.      

The first classes will be held soon after.

Today after invited guests get a chance to sign the top most beam, it will be lifted into place by crane and an evergreen attached for good luck.
