The second and final phase of the Learning Commons project officially opened for business on Wednesday September 18th.
The first phase opened last semester and includes state-of-the-art science labs, a virtual dissector table and multi-configurable classrooms.
The newest phase, in the old science building, includes offices for Study Abroad, the Curry Speaking Center, the Writing Center and a new café, to name just a few additions.
The opening ribbon cutting featured Curry president Kenneth Quigley, provost David Szczerbacki and other members of the faculty, alumni and board of trustees. The goal of the new building, according to Curry officials, is to provide the space and tools to facilitate the college’s approach to “teaching and learning through mentoring and empowering students to help them achieve their ambitions.”
