New Art Building Set to Open in November

News_ArtBuildFrontPageThis November is the planned opening for the new Joan and Robert Rechnitz Hall Art Building on campus. The building, currently under construction, will boast 20,340 square feet of classrooms and faculty offices as well as a three-story gallery. Robert L. Cornero, Associate Vice President of Campus Planning & Construction explains that the construction had a delayed start because of waiting on approval for last minute changes. These changes included the structuce, technical issues, heating system, lighting revisions, foundation revisions, ceiling revisions and different trim and tile patterns.

The project was no small undertaking with numerous different people working on the building since construction began. “We have averaged approximately 15 workers per day since the project started last December,” said Cornero. “At first there were heavy equipment operators and laborers, then there were concrete masons, then iron workers and so on,” he said.

During the last phases of the project, Cornero says they have been using more contractors who specialize in finishing trades, such as carpenters, electricians, tin knockers, tile setters and painters.

The new larger gallery is planning to be the center piece of the building with classrooms and offices around it. This will give everyone who enters the building a chance to see not only the works of students, but also outside artists.

Welcome from the President

Dear Hawks:

Welcome back to class. This was my tenth summer at Monmouth and by far the busiest; not just for me but for the many staff, administrators and faculty who worked here over the last three months. From simple improvements to drainage in a few areas and brighter lights around

Wilson Hall, to the newly constructed Rechnitz Hall (Art Building), to a new Trading Room in the Business School, to new ARAMARK dining options, and many more improvements, we continue to make the campus something about which to be proud.

We are in the final throes of opening graduate classes in the Monmouth Park Corporate Center, just less than two miles away. Psychological Counseling will open there this year and the new Physician’s Assistant program next year. This is big step for us. It also gives us a bit more elbowroom on the main campus.

You will see changes in Howard Hall: a new home for Psychology. Expect continual changes this year to the labs in Edison Hall.

We have a full, new first-year class and several hundred transfer students. This is a terrific new class. I’ve met many of our new students and they are confident, from diverse backgrounds, and highly qualified.

VP Student Services

default article imageTo the newest members of the Monmouth University community - the Class of 2016 - and to our new transfer students, a hearty welcome. To all our returning students, welcome back! It’s great to have you with us again. I hope your summer was productive and fun and you are now ready for an outstanding year here at Monmouth.

As in the past, the University has undertaken a number of projects this summer to improve your experience as a student. First and foremost, you will notice a new food service facility in the Stafford Student Center - Raising Cane’s. This chicken finger concept will be open six days a week to satisfy your hunger for chicken fingers. Stop by and see this cool new dining option. Java City has moved to the Plangere Center in a newly renovated space and will be open six days a week. I am happy to report that the Joan and Robert Rechnitz Hall Art Building is nearing completion. Also, a financial service trading room has been built in Bey Hall in support of the Leon Hess Business School. In addition, Oakwood Hall has been renovated. It has been a busy summer!

Related to our new food service facilities are some major changes to our meal plans. Students with meal plans may now use a meal swipe in the Stafford Center Food Court during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meal options for this swipe will be available at every station to provide you with many choices. A new ARAMARK management team is in place, and I know you will be pleased with the dining changes.

You will also find a wealth of opportunities to get involved in the life of the campus. New clubs will welcome your participation and the Greek life system is always looking for strong students who want to form a common bond. Come out and cheer all the student-athletes who represent you and the University so well. Take advantage of the outstanding performing arts, theatre and film schedules. All of this is here for you – but you must choose to take advantage of them.
