Woodbridge Arts & Science Building

The campus submitted suggestions and then voted on them.  Woodbridge Arts & Science won! The name definitely encompasses the content of the building.

Progress is steadily being made to make the May completion date. The staff on campus is very busy with furniture orders, Fall class schedules and other preparations for the new building. The construction crews sealed the building earlier on and have drywalled most of the interior. The construction crews were also busy installing many of the environmental features including the reservoir for the geothermal heating/cooling system.

Fall Update

The Fall 2012 semester started last week and showed us here at the campus how desperately we need more space. It was good to hear that the Phase 3 building is on schedule to be completed by May 2013 with classes starting in the building Fall 2013.

Lake side view of the construction. A patio will be built outside as well.

This image shows the new loading dock space for the building. A wall will go up on the left to provide a better appearance to those driving by on College Drive.

We are hoping to get a walkway to adjoin the Phase 3 building and the existing Seefeldt building on the top floors.
