The new Art and Interactive Multimedia building is planned to open within the next year.

“The goal is to have the Art and Interactive Multimedia Building opened for the spring semester, but classes will not begin there until the fall,” Matthew Golden, executive director of public relations and communication at the College, said.

Decker Hall will be closed until fall semester 2010, due to the bathroom replacement project.

Other upcoming projects on the college campus include Kendall Hall roof replacement, Loser Hall patio drainage, Music Building water-proofing, Administrative Services Building roof replacement and the Roscoe West Library 1968 Wing renovation, Golden said.

It is unknown whether or not Cromwell Hall will be closed during the 2010-2011 school year.

Some students at the College are beginning to feel both frustrated and excited about the new construction happening on campus.

“I think that it’s great that they’re trying to update the campus,” said Cat Jung, freshmen open options culture and society major.

Some students are more irritated by the construction then excited.

“It’s just annoying when I need to take a new route to class because of some construction project,” Natasha Walulik, a freshmen nursing major, said. “It seems that the campus is in a constant state of construction.”
