Students new to
Emory this fall are finding their way around a campus that is considerably
different from the one the Class of 1999 left behind in May. Most noticeably,
there are fewer cars, less concrete, and more green spaces and walkways.
There are also several new buildings under construction on Emorys
main campus, some of which are highlighted here.
Miller-Ward Alumni Center
returning to campus next year will be able to visit this twenty-three-thousand-square-foot,
Tudor-style building, located on Houston Mill Road adjacent to the Houston
Mill House. Named for Dean of Alumni JUDSON
JAKE WARD 33C-36G
and the late H.
PRENTICE MILLER 27C-28G,
the center is scheduled for completion this March.
Donna and Marvin Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts
in honor of alumna
and her husband, Marvin, who together contributed $8 million for the
project, the center will provide new classroom space for the performing
arts, as well as an eight-hundred-seat concert hall, a rehearsal hall,
ensemble space, theater lab, and dance studio. The building, to be located
at the corner of North Decatur and Clifton roads, is scheduled for completion
in May 2002.
Logan Emerson Hall
The first of the two-phase Science 2000 construction project, this five-story
building located next to White Hall is scheduled for completion in December
2000. Named for CHERRY
L. EMERSON 38C-39G,
a notable scientist and a major supporter of Emory’s music programs,
the building will house the materials and biomolecular chemistry programs,
a scientific computing center, and a physical sciences library.
Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing
A new home
for nursing students and faculty is underway at the corner of Clifton
Road and Michael Street. Designed in the traditional architectural style
of the buildings on the Quadrangle, the one-hundred-thousand-square-foot
building will house classrooms, nursing simulation labs, research project
space, a 160-seat auditorium, and a 140-seat case-study lecture hall.
Completion of the project is scheduled for January 2001.
Whitehead Research Building
This eight-story biomedical research facility is under construction
on Michael Street adjacent to the Rollins Research Center. Scheduled
for completion in August 2001, the building will house the anatomy,
cell biology, and physiology departments.
College performing arts venues
Oxford College is expanding and renovating Williams Gymnasium and Few
Hall to provide venues for the performing arts. The refurbishment of
Williams Gym, which already houses dance and athletics classes, will
create new space for classrooms and dance and music performances. An
addition to Few Hall will house a 120-seat theater, scene shop, lobby
and ticket office, and rehearsal space.S.P.
