If you visit the College of Nursing, you’ll notice some big changes in the public spaces on the first and second floors; renovations to the lobbies and elevators were finished at the end of October. Flooring was replaced, walls were spruced up with new paint, fixtures were upgraded and the elevators were given a face-lift with wood paneling inside and out.
“The lobby renovations and upgrades are parallel to our modernization of our entire college as we continue our transformational journey of distinction, leadership and impact,” says Dean Jeannette Andrews. “It provided an elegant setting for our team, university guests, clinical partners, advisory council, and alumni for our champagne toast celebrating our record 99.3% NCLEX pass rate last month. Even more so, it is a delight to see our students hanging out in our beautiful renovated space networking, studying, and connecting with peers and our team.”
The most notable changes are in the second floor lobby. A wall between the entrance and a conference room has been taken down, opening the lobby to the windows on the Greene Street side of the building. The space has been renovated into a sitting area with new furniture for students, visitors, faculty and staff to connect.
On the first floor, a new sign welcomes visitors and students to the College of Nursing and new furniture provides a comfortable space for students and visitors to sit.
