On Monday, English department faculty and staff did a walkthrough of the renovated Eddy Hall. Finish work is still being completed, but we were able to get a sneak peak of the space.
Bruce Ronda, Associate Dean for Faculty and Graduate Studies and one time department chair, led the tour, and had this to say,
Welcome to the NEW Eddy Hall! On behalf of the CLA Dean’s Office, I’m delighted to welcome you back to Eddy. The revitalization, which began in May 2014, is nearing completion, with the move-back beginning May 18 and proceeding into the next week. By mid-June, the grounds will be landscaped, and we expect a fully-functioning building by beginning of fall semester 2015. Highlights of the building of interest to English faculty and students include a new Writing Center, newly furnished computer classrooms, bright colors, and new graphics.
Department Chair Louann Reid, who stayed at the back of the group during the walkthrough to make sure the tour kept moving along and no one got lost, had this to say,
Faculty, staff, and graduate students were treated today to a private tour of Eddy Hall. We were eager to learn what had gone on behind the wire fences that have surrounded Eddy Hall for the past year. Although we had avidly watched the stages of destruction and construction, we were not prepared for what we saw. Our tired, old home has been transformed into a place filled with light and an explosion of colors. The halls seem wider and the windows larger. Faculty offices have new furniture, and student lounges appear throughout the building. Less visible but no less important are the individual temperature controls in offices and the many green energy features. We are thrilled with this significantly improved environment for teaching, learning, researching, and creating. Most of all, we are eager to be in one place again, together with our colleagues and students. Amazing things will happen here.
