INTERIORS UPDATING FOR ACADEMICS dedicated last November (2012). The facility was the first new academic building on the 110-acre campus since 1967. The 48,000-sq.-ft. building increased the College's academic space from 15 to 29 percent of the total physical plant. SMC's seven student residence halls account for most of the balance. SMC's administration can focus next on upgrading existing buildings. "Ellis Hall provides a comfortable teaching and learning environment," Dr. Keith adds. "I find a new synergy exists among our department faculty with offices there. It's rather fascinating how this new building has influenced the whole process of learning here."

The preliminary planning and execution of this particular building program fulfi lled the long-awaited wish list and viable solutions reached by the entire SMC project team, Dr. Keith says.
