Excitement is Building at Augustana
Posted on September 9, 2014 by Christopher Thrall
FAQs about construction projects on campus, including the Performing Arts Centre, Founders’ Hall and downstairs Forum renovations.
There has been a frenzy of construction and renovation on the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus in the past few years. Since we broke ground for the new Library in 2007 – and replaced Ole’s Crossing with a land bridge to the senior residences – the face of Augustana has changed dramatically.
The Library is finished, and we have been using the Forum for several years. We have a new Facilities & Operations building, and a paved parking lot in front of the Faith & Life Centre. We’re not done yet: excitement continues to build at Augustana!
Three major projects are under way right now at Augustana, two currently very visible from the Quad and the other just about to get started. We have assembled a number of the frequently-asked questions on these projects and produced the following FAQs. We hope they will help our communities – both internal and external – better understand the work being done on campus. And we hope you will join us in celebrating each of these wonderful projects in turn!
The Performing Arts Centre FAQ answers questions such as “Who will get to use the space?”, “How is the project being funded?” and “When will the Centre open?” Read updates about special features – or perhaps a special name for the Centre itself.
Old Main is being equipped to serve for the next hundred years! The Founders’ Hall Renovation FAQ describes the goals and timelines for the renovation. Find out about the Campus Living Room and read about the offices and services that will be available when the doors open next Fall.
The Downstairs Forum Renovation FAQ describes the upcoming renovation, including details on an expanded Aboriginal student service space, and what it is intended to accomplish. The FAQ answers questions such as “Who has been consulted on the project?” and “Why target the Forum for this project?”. Check out similar investments that Augustana is making to address the needs of international students.
