Campus construction continues

VSU continues to re-construct its campus, this time with the demolishing of the north wing of Converse Hall.
A Psychology and Counseling Building is planned to take its place.
Converse hall’s replacement will have all new classrooms, labs and administrative offices and will make its debut in July 2011.
The building will be approximately 33,000 square feet and stand three stories tall.
The change in location will please many psychology students, as the new spot on campus is more convenient than the old psychology building which is next to the Continuing Education building on Patterson.

Campus construction continues around campus. On Wednesday morning construction began for the new Psychology building with the destruction of Coverse Hall.
“It’s great that they are moving it on campus,” said Matt Vongsavanh, a fourth year psychology major.” “Not only will it have bigger and better classrooms for students to access, it will also help cut down the cost of fuel that students and busses use since the current building is located off the main campus.”
Another new addition to VSU topography is currently under construction next to the Education building on the corner of Oak Street and Baytree Road.
The Jerry and Kay Jennett lecture hall will open this semester and is approximately 16,000 square feet. The building cost around $2 million to complete.
Sidewalk construction and other various small jobs continue to take place around campus.
The renovation and removal of asbestos in Odum Library will also continue this semester. The first floor is near completion and the third floor is in the middle of renovation according to Odum Library’s website.
