Two major construction projects are wrapping up just in time for the opening of the fall semester. The renovation of Nation Hall East and the expansion and renovation of the Overman Student Center will be complete when students arrive.
The Nation Hall East renovation is the final piece in a multi-year project to renovate every on-campus living space.
“The completion of Nation Hall renovation marks the conclusion of a critical effort to both revitalize and create new options for on-campus student housing,” said Steve Erwin, vice president for student life. “Beginning in 2000 with restoration of historic Willard Hall, the university has invested well over $30 million to assure that students have safe, comfortable and modern accommodations to support them in their academic goals.”
The student center project includes an expanded, flexible ballroom with a sound system and acoustics for multiple types of programs; an expanded campus activities center complex; more student gathering and lounge spaces, additional meeting rooms and a bigger U-Club with new food options in the lower level.
