New Campus Center Dedicated
May 14, 2009
Wheelock College dedicated its new Campus Center and Student Residence today.
Boston mayor Thomas Menino attended the ceremony and praised both the aesthetics of the building and its environmentally friendly design in his remarks.
The curved glass façade overlooks The Riverway and provides a beautiful and welcoming entrance to the Wheelock campus. Students returning for the spring semester were delighted to find many new amenities in the building, including a multi-station dining facility; a campus store; traditional and suite-style housing for 108 students; and many gathering spaces for student groups and events. Thanks to special features such as a "green" roof and light-absorbing windows, the building is slated to receive Leadership in Energy and Efficient Design (LEED) certification.
