Stephens College is in the midst of an aggressive facilities campaign that involves upgrading and modernizing the interiors of some of the campus’ historic buildings. Four facilities underwent extensive renovations this summer.

1. Pillsbury Hall 3. Dudley Hall 2. Hickman Hall 4. Stamper Commons


1 Dudley Hall, on

Broadway near Ripley Street


Five classrooms in Dudley Hall were renovated this summer as part of the “Room to Grow” campaign. Started in 2011, the campaign is dedicated to upgrading and modernizing classroom space. The work will transform the classrooms into modernized learning spaces complete with Smart Board technology and more electric outlets for laptops. The Smart Boards are replacing chalkboards to fit the way students learn today, Stephens College strategist Janese Silvey said. Before the renovations, Dudley

up the older space, Silvey said. The lab space is being upgraded with a new ceiling, flooring, cabinets and countertops, as well as new lighting and audio technology. “These projects essentially bring the interiors of our buildings up to modern standards while preserving the historic integrity of our campus,” wrote Richard Perkins, campus project manager, in a press release.

Broadway between Waugh Street and College Avenue Hall had smaller desks that were just big enough for notepads, Silvey said. New classrooms are getting desks and tables large enough to hold laptops.

A newly renovated dance studio, lounge and warm-up room in Hickman Hall will be a welcome change for the dance program, Silvey said. Renovations, which were prompted by the sale of Hillcrest Hall, include new windows in the eastern facade of the building. Previously housed in the basement of the auditorium, the dance

program will move to the facilities in the third floor of Hickman Hall. Dance students did not have a warm-up room or a lounge when they were housed in the auditorium, Silvey said. The theater department’s costume shop is also being temporarily housed at Hickman Hall. The move should have no effect on the program.

The fitness center once housed at Hillcrest Hall has been relocated next to the student union. The 21 exercise machines from the center, which include weights, treadmills and stationary bicycles, were relocated to a renovated space at Stamper Commons. Moving the fitness center next to the student union places the equipment in a more convenient location, Silvey said.

By Caitlin Campbell A newly constructed stateof-the-art science center, dubbed the Gerald T. and Bonnie M. Brouder Science Center, opens at Columbia College this month. Columbia College’s Board of Trustees decided to name the building after President Gerald Brouder and his wife, Bonnie, to honor their commitment to strengthening the sciences at Columbia College. Brouder served the college for the past 18 years. He retired Aug. 1. “I’m truly honored and humbled by the board’s decision,” Brouder said in a press release. “The science center is a grand achievement, a milestone in my career.”
