Campus Renovations July 2017
Construction keeps moving along as we continue our multimillion-dollar Campus Renovation Plan. Campus-wide we have installed new ceiling tiles, as well as energy-efficient LED lighting in our classrooms. Electrical grids are being completely replaced, and the installation of our new air conditioning and heating units is almost complete. The renovations in the Raider Gym continue with the HVAC overhaul. On top of all that progress, we have begun construction on a new main entrance area outside the Raider Gym. Look for more information soon on the main entrance project and updates on our Campus Renovation Plan!
