Echlin gets first-floor facelift
Students returning to campus from winter break were greeted by more construction, this time in the Echlin Health Sciences Center.
The plan, according to Associate Vice President for Facilities Administration Joe Rubertone, is to move undergraduate admissions and financial aid from the Arnold Bernhard Library to the first floor of Echlin. Graduate admissions will most likely be relocated to the North Haven campus, Rubertone said.
Rubertone’s goal is to accomplish the move to Echlin by early June at the latest.
“It’s a good spot for admissions,” Rubertone said.
More student study space will be created in the library. Rubertone said an area in the center of the library will be moved to the spot admissions vacated, thus leaving behind more space for students. Rubertone said he hopes this will be completed as early as September.
The second floor of Echlin will also be getting a facelift. Rubertone said classrooms will be reconfigured and faculty offices will be transformed from doubles to singles.
