Charleston Southern University broke ground last week for an expansion of the college’s reception center and plans to do the same this week for its nursing school.
The university put shovels in the dirt to mark the beginning of a 4,733-square-foot expansion for the Hunter Reception Center on Friday, which nearly doubles the size of the existing building built in 1991, CSU said in a news release. The university also plans to renovate about 1,200 square feet of the original building.
“Service to our students is our No. 1 priority, so we are excited about the expansion to the building which will allow us to better serve our students,” said Debbie Williamson, vice president for enrollment management in a statement.
CSU said the university’s College of Adult and Professional Studies, student accounts and cashier offices will relocate to the Hunter Reception Center after the expansion is finished in mid-2013.
The university also plans to break ground on an expansion of the Derry Patterson Wingo School of Nursing building Friday morning. The 16,100-square-foot expansion adds teaching labs, observation booths, nursing faculty offices and interactive space for nursing students in the growing program, the university said.
