Campus construction continues

It’s impossible to miss the major projects taking place when walking across Colorado Mesa University’s campus. This summer, both the main campus and WCCC will undergo extensive work, including the construction of two buildings, the reflooring of Bronson Arena and the re-turfing of Walker Field, and multiple maintenance initiatives.

Garfield Hall, CMU’s newest residence hall, opens at the end of the summer. Garfield, the first of four halls to be built along Cannell Avenue as enrollment increases, will house more than 200 first-year students this fall. Several other residence halls will undergo maintenance.

Construction has also begun on CMU’s newest classroom building, Academic Classroom Building II. The three-story building will house the Languages, Literature and Mass Communication Department, as well as Rocky Mountain PBS. ACB II will open in the fall of 2014.

Walker Field’s used turf, worth approximately $60,000, will be donated to Central and Fruita Monument high schools for their athletic fields. Work will also be completed on the Maverick Center, El Pomar Natatorium, Hamilton Recreation Center and the softball field.

Renovations and an expansion are in the works for Tomlinson Library, beginning in the summer of 2014. The plans include new technology, study spaces, and opportunities for online learning, creating an asset for students and faculty for years to come.

A ceiling will be replaced in one of the WCCC lecture halls. The Bishop Campus will also receive new furniture and patches for parking lot potholes, among several smaller maintenance projects.

CMU continues to grow and improvements to its facilites and amenities remain a vital component of student success. •
