Most of the interior walls of the building have received a fresh coat of paint and the president's office has been updated with new paint, carpet and furniture. Renovations are currently underway in the alumni suite of the building to create a more inviting area for visiting alumni and friends and by summer's end the space formerly occupied by the Indian Museum will be renovated to house the business office.

  • College Hall. The central building on campus will receive the most attention this summer as renovations begin on the main floor. The plans call for new paint, carpet and decorations. The lobby areas will also be redecorated (current furniture will be recovered/restored and new furniture added) to make for a welcoming entrance for current and prospective students and their families. Plans are also underway for renovations of Social Parlor, which will also include carpet, paint and redecoration.
  • Morley Music Hall. This ongoing project includes a new roof on the outside and major renovations to the inside. The Skinner Organ is currently being restored off campus and will be reinstalled before summer is out. The chamber, which stores the organ pipes, has been repainted and current projects include renovations to the stage area and the pews.
