New Student Success Center Underway

With the creation of the new Student Success Center in the former dining hall (Bishop Hall), Career Services, the Galesi Academic Resource Center, the Office of Student Success and the Writing Center will soon be location in one, central location. The new center will allow students to receive the academic and career preparation support they need in one place. Renovation of the old dining hall has already begun and is expected to be completed around the first of August.

"We are very excited about being able to better serve our students' needs through the new Student Success Center," said Dr. Tiffany Franks, Averett's president. "It will be a place that will provide support at every level for every student, whether they are a first year student looking for help with a class, a sophomore who is deciding on a major or a senior looking for a job upon graduation. The creation of this center will be the largest single space on campus devoted to helping Averett students be successful."

The new center, which is undergoing reconstruction thanks to donations, will include meeting space, testing space, computer labs and individual and group study rooms.

"The renovated space will become an inviting and energetic area where students can study independently or work in teams," said Mary Vanderlinden, assistant dean of Student Success. "The extensive use of glass walls will bring an open, airy, and modern look to the campus. Most importantly, the central location of the center presents Averett as an institution dedicated to academics. We look forward to occupying this area and better serving all of our students."
