“Both of those programs are growing by leaps and bounds,” Sciame-Giesecke said.
Right now, the main building is undergoing work to fix electrical issues. It will be closed for the next several weeks. All summer classes have been moved to other buildings. Offices have been moved as well.
“We’re sitting on top of each right now,” the interim chancellor said.
Those electrical issues will be fixed by the time fall classes start, though. None of the other upgrades will close the building, Sciame-Giesecke said.
“The challenge will be to renovate while we live in it,” she said.
The end result will be worth it, she said. Eventually, the campus will have an improved main building in addition to the new fitness center, which officially opens Sept. 18.
“We’re going to be transforming campus,” Sciame-Giesecke said.
