UC and Emerald Hill completions give Ellington and Browning occupants breathing room
January 14, 2002
As staff from several areas begin to move into the University Center, they will leave behind empty offices, especially in Ellington Building. This will provide new space for the now-cramped offices of Admissions, Registrar and Financial Aid. According to Dr. Jennifer Meningall, vice president for student affairs, sororities also are slowly but surely moving out of Ellington to houses on Castle Heights.
Alumni affairs staff, currently crammed into offices in Browning, will move back into the Pace Alumni Center at Emerald Hill in mid-February when the front section of the elegant, antebellum home is re-opened after months of structural repair and renovation.
According to Dr. Bob Adams, vice president for finance and administration, housing projects also are moving forward. Bids are to go out in March or April for a 300-bed complex on Home Avenue for single student housing and a 50-bed expansion of married student housing at Emerald Hill. These facilities will be ready for use in Summer 2003.
Although there are no capital funds for the McCord renovation due to the statewide freeze on such projects, APSU is proceeding with architectural plans and renderings.
