Ground broken for academic building
Construction is underway for a major new academic building (rendering above). Located on Chanticleer Drive East next to the Wall College of Business, the 52,000-square-foot building will house approximately 60 faculty and staff offices for various departments, including sociology, recreation and sport management, computer science and information systems, and the University honors program. Sixteen classrooms are also planned, accommodating from 25 to 35 students each, and a “grab and go” restaurant operated by Aramark. The building is expected to be completed by March 2017.
