It’s out from the old and into the new for everyone designated to move from Murray-Herrick Campus Center to the new Anderson Student Center.

As they settle into their new spaces, when the new Anderson Student Center officially opens on Tuesday, Jan. 17, remodeling the vacant spaces and reassignment work will begin in Murray-Herrick. In the meantime, there are a few things for the campus community to keep in mind.

The following departments will remain in Murray-Herrick in their original locations and will continue to provide services.

  • Post Office
  • Bookstore
  • Card Office (after remodeling, will move to Room 101-102, Murray-Herrick)
  • Counseling and Psychological Services
  • Career Development Center
  • CILCE
  • Development Call Center
  • Aquinas Scholars
  • Teacher Education (will relocate to lower level of Murray-Herrick when remodeling begins)

In addition, the following Murray-Herrick meeting rooms will remain on line with delivery-charge food service and can be reserved through Web Viewer:

  • Room 152
  • Room 154
  • Room 155
  • Room 160
  • Fireside Room
  • Hormel Room
  • Rogge-Leyden Room
  • Room 304

All vacated spaces have been reassigned to student business services departments or designated for new classroom development.

Bids for renovation work are out to vendors. The Physical Plant anticipates awarding the bid sometime this month. After the opening of the Anderson Student Center on Jan. 17, the Physical Plant will begin to move furniture out of vacated offices and into the Blue Lagoon area in preparation for remodeling work in the offices.

The first floor of Murray-Herrick and the second-floor Cafeteria space will then be closed off to the public beginning about Wednesday, Feb. 1, and will remain closed for renovation through August 15. Remodeling work will take place from approximately Feb. 27 through Aug. 15.

Departments designated for reassignment to Murray-Herrick in the first phase include the:

  • Registrar’s Office
  • Business Office
  • Card Office
  • Academic Counseling and Enhancement Services

The first phase is expected to be completed by the fall 2012 start of school.

Questions and concerns can be directed to the Campus Space Advisory group co-chairs: Jerry Anderley, Linda Halverson and Joe Kreitzer.
