Extensive John Rogers Hall Renovation Under Way

Saturday, June 04, 2011

Almost immediately after the last spring semester final exam was administered, work began on the major renovation of John Rogers Hall. This will occur throughout the summer and will transform JRH into a learning space that will rival the top law schools in the nation.

The project will consist of an interior redesign of the public lobby, classrooms and corridors, as well as create new restroom facilities, lockers and administrative areas. New ceilings and energy-efficient lighting will be installed. Classrooms will be remodeled with new carpeting, wall covering, lighting, ceilings, updated technology, and furniture. In the administrative area, staff will be provided a work space designed for functionality and serviceability. The mezzanine and student social areas will include new lighting, digital signage, artwork, and many other modern and aesthetically pleasing features.

The redesign will increase the law school’s competitive edge, enhance student learning, help faculty recruitment, and contribute to the future high standing of the College. Go here to monitor the progress of the renovation throughout the summer.
