Volunteer State Community College’s main Gallatin campus is under construction for a new Humanities building. The building will be located between the Wood Campus Center and the Mattox Building.
The new building will be the Steinhauer, Rogan and Black Building.
It will be the largest building on campus at 88,345 square feet.
Specific criteria that is planned for the new building includes it having 23 classrooms, 18 labs, 11 collaborative study areas, 56 offices, adjunct faculty workrooms, an outdoor amphitheater, and a courtyard. It will also have a recording studio/ lab; drawing, ceramics and printmaking studios; instrumental art gallery, computer labs, and a large capacity of flexible instructional space.
“We’re really excited about the opportunity this will give to our students in the Humanities program. But it will also free up space for us to offer exciting and collaborative activities and classes for students in all programs,” said Alycia Ehlert, dean of the Humanities division.
Construction is said to be completed by the summer of 2016.
Traffic and parking changes and warnings will be e-mailed throughout the Vol State community via their student or faculty g-mail accounts.
