Prior to the renovation, the building was much more instructor-focused, with labs and classrooms occupying every available square inch of the facility with faculty offices hidden away from students. The new renovation changes this by distributing student focused spaces such as study pods, a kitchenette, break-out rooms, and other social spaces throughout. Additionally, administration is distributed throughout the building, connecting them more directly with campus goings-on. Once out of view from students, two new faculty office suites are centrally located to promote student / instructor collaboration. Even the new Academic Advising suite is located directly adjacent to the large student commons located in the new south addition.
