The sunshine has been our best friend, highlighting the beauty of the Mt. Carmel campus and we are ready to receive visitors for our first Open House event of the season this Saturday, September 20.
The biggest news for our undergraduate campus is that the School of Law has relocated to our North Haven campus. This allowed the School of Communications and the Engineering program to spread out and take advantage of this building and enhance the academic experiences for students in those programs. The School of Law Center has benefited from the proximity to our graduate programs and there are plans to collaborate with our medical school and other graduate programs in the health sciences.
The Engineering program has expanded to the lower level of the Center for Communications and Engineering. The Associate Dean of Engineering, Justin Kile, explained the renovations this way to a non-engineer, "we are adding many large pieces of equipment such as a flume and hands-on equipment that goes boom." They expect those "things that go boom" will all be in place for the spring semester. The engineering active classroom and computer-assisted lab in Tator Hall will still house the manufacturing equipment that our first year students use to create their projects.
School of Communications faculty and staff have moved to the new facility, where additional classrooms, including a new multimedia computer classroom, and open media labs, are already being utilized by students. The Ed McMahon Mass Communications Center, located in the Lender School of Business Center, will remain in its original location for now. The School of Communications is investing in new technology and curriculum updates to keep pace with the rapidly changing field of communications.
So, come for a visit this fall and see the many changes and exciting innovations that Quinnipiac has to offer. We can't wait to meet this year's high school students.
