NEW HOME FOR A NEW ‘SCHOOL’
A newly-formed school is moving in to its new offices. The School for College Preparatory Studies has recently moved its offices from Support Services inside the Rogers Student Center to P-105 inside Potter Hall.
The one-time classroom has been going under an extreme makeover during the summer to transform it into functional offices.
Staff Technician Dana Vega said the move has been beneficial to the department.
“The majority of our faculty is housed in Potter,” said Vega. “It was [Dean Lisa Harper’s] decision to house us in a centralized location so that we are easily accessible to our faculty.”
