Groundbreaking Ceremony for New Campus Center
October 11, 2007Wheelock College proudly announces construction of a new Campus Center and Student Residence. On Thursday, October 11, a groundbreaking reception will be held at 4:30 p.m.
The Campus Center and Student Residence is the first new building on Wheelock’s campus in nearly 40 years and will house a beautiful new center for activity on campus.
The space will include a campus store, coffee bar, student organization offices, student study and a multi-purpose room that can be used for many functions on campus. In addition, the second floor of the building will be the home of new cafeteria allowing us to provide more flexibility and choice in our on-campus dining program. Above these first two floors will be the first new student rooms built as on-campus housing in Wheelock’s history. These will include new choices in housing including suite-style housing with a living room and private bath.
This new building will be a certified Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) “green” building. We are thrilled to start construction on this new building that will support and provide much needed space for our growing programs and enrollment at Wheelock College.
