TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Fall semester is underway at Indiana State University, and students can now experience newly renovated buildings.
The Fine Arts building is now open for classes after undergoing construction last year.
The College of Health and Human Services building is also complete after its second and final phase of renovation finished. Construction for this project began in summer 2016, and Phase One was complete last year.
The expansion includes a four-story atrium, a two-story clear space promenade, and improvements to the campus entrance on 4th and Chestnut Streets.
This $64 million project is said to be creating a visual impact that will make the school a destination space.
“And I think it’s great, they kind of got a tease of it earlier with Phase One being complete but I think with Phase Two and its entire two-story open walkway connecting from east to west I think really is impressive to everyone,” said Director of Capital Planning and Improvements Bryan Duncan.
Duncan says the Hulman Center remaing the campus’ largest current renovation project. He says that will be completed in late 2020.
