Sliding glass partitions offer privacy while still allowing natural light and an open feel.Also located in the center will be the admissions office, financial aid office, and some business office personnel.The Board of Regents allocated $3 million for construction from its minor capital projects budget.Parking will be available in the lot behind the building with access from both College Drive and Spencer Street.The building was designed by JMA Architecture, Interiors, Planning of Perry.
