Construction Begins on Liberal Arts' First Major Expansion

Behind the chain-link fence on the south side of the Liberal Arts building, construction trailers are abuzz with activity. Inside the building, workers in hardhats are making plans to remove the sizeable chunk of brick and mortar that makes up the Pegasus Theatre.

Construction has begun on a project that will expand and modernize the Liberal Arts building, adding 55,000 square feet of classroom and office space, as well as a new auditorium and student meeting spaces.

The $17 million expansion is the first major renovation in the Liberal Arts building’s 50-year history. Ground was broken on the project in November and construction of the new addition is expected to take a year and a half.

The university’s Architectural and Engineering Services and Lippert Bros. construction have established a website that streams live images of construction, as well as information and architect's renderings of the completed project. Find out more at the Liberal Arts Renovation and Addition page.
