|The new Academic Services Building serves as the “Gateway to the College” in both a physical and functional sense. Located on the edge of campus, it is the first building that will be visible as students, faculty, staff and visitors approach the campus. The large glass exterior, when lit at night, will act as a beacon for the College.
This 38,902 square-foot, 3-story instructional building includes flexible classrooms with instructional technology, a library, an instructional media center, administrative and faculty offices, a broadcasting center, video conferencing rooms, lecture/performance space, a coffee bar, and a 200-seat multi-purpose room.
Flexibility is a key component of the design. With the programming and the schematic plan for State funding completed 7 years prior to the building’s opening date, the needs of the College changed. By providing flexible instructional spaces with appropriate flexible technology, the ability for faculty and students to adapt can be met.
