Three major projects are underway this summer to enhance learning and living on campus:
Bernardine Hall North is undergoing complete renovation, including creation of multiple labs for occupational therapy that will support pediatric and adult patient assessment. Two conference rooms will be added; one will feature two-way mirrors for observation and student assessment. Office suites are also being created for the occupational therapy, nursing and math faculty. In addition, Kestrel Café is moving to the center of the lobby, making room for new ADA-compliant bathrooms.
The Doctorate of Physical Therapy program will be located in the Physical Education Center ground floor, formerly the fitness center and dance studio. This space will have a lab and two faculty offices and will provide space and equipment necessary for the DPT program scheduled to begin in fall of 2014.
The Courtside Café will be expanded and upgraded, with new seating and amenities added to the Shander Room. To make way for a much expanded food service area, the sports information office will be relocated down the hall to PEC 209. In addition, the front of the PEC is getting a new look as the entry plaza gets a green makeover.
