Construction work is continuing on the Campus Entries and Planetarium Projects with work on two new renovation projects, Campus Center and Forum, commencing this fall. The design process is continuing on the Performance Hall project, which is a 20,000 sq. ft. facility incorporating the new home for the Euphrat Museum of Art and a 400-seat classroom/performance hall.
