With such widespread attention, the Office of Campus Design & Planning recently addressed the need for numerous renovation and improvement projects throughout the existing campus, in order to meet the University's future enrollment goals and current instructional needs. Among which, were the outdated classroom and lab facilities in Hall Memorial Building, home to the University’s Science, Technology, and Math (STM) Department. Recently completed, Hall Memorial Building's multi-phased renovation and expansion included the complete redesign of the building’s science labs; renovations and additions to existing classrooms and STM Department offices; improved layouts to minimize visual distraction in labs and classrooms; a new two-story student collaboration and lounge space; a new open stairway that connects the third and fourth floors; new and improved pedestrian walkways designed to prevent accidental collisions; and the relocation of the Department of Psychology and the Office of the Dean of Arts & Sciences.
