Where Is Everyone?

Where Is Everyone?

The temporary location of student services is located at the front entrance of Findley Hall to the right of the SLAD offices.

The new Larry R. Moore Nursing and Administration Building will soon be completed and is set for dedication on Tuesday, Sept. 25. With this newest edition to the Southwestern Adventist University campus comes the moving of a few of SWAU’s academic and administrative departments. The following departments have been relocated or will be relocated, some permanently others temporarily.

The kinesiology department and the Center for Academic Success (CASA) have both moved to Hagan Hall. Kinesiology was formerly located in the Leiske-Pultar Gymnasium and CASA was in Evans Hall.

Although working space is cramped for student services workers, the current office is temporary and they should be moving soon.

Psychology has joined education in the suites at the opposite end of the hall. The communication department has moved to the second floor of Pechero Hall in the suite previously occupied by the psychology department.

This marks the first time in its forty-year history that the communication department has been located on the center mall of campus. The nursing department is temporarily being moved into Evans Hall until the new nursing building is ready for use later this month.

The moves will continue throughout the fall semester and on into the spring. Radio station 88.3 The Journey is being moved from its current location on the north side of campus by Moran Hall into what was previously the nursing simulation center across Hillcrest Street from Pechero Hall.

The new communication department suite is located on the second floor of Pechero Hall, where Gabby Behrens serves as secretary in the afternoons.

Once Moore Hall has been completed several administrative departments will move from Findley Hall. These will include the president’s office (Dr. Ken Shaw), the VP for academic administration’s office (Dr. Amy Rosenthal), the VP for financial administration’s office (Joel Wallace) and the human resource office (Genelle Rogers). The remaining departments in Findley will also be relocated. Student services will be temporarily moved to the offices left vacant by the administrative departments, and Spiritual Life and Development (SLAD) will be expanded into the office previously housed by the VP of financial administration.

The advancement offices including development (Kisha Norris), public relations & marketing (Darcy Force), alumni (Vonda Seals), and the VP of advancement (Tami Condon) will also be moving from Moran Hall into Moore Hall.

Nursing classes and practice equipment are temporarily being held in Evans Hall until the Larry R. Moore Nursing and Administration Building is complete.

Finally, after being erected in 1956 Evans Hall will be razed from SWAU’s campus. The same fate will be shared by the buildings surrounding Moran Hall, which housed the communication mac lab, offices, and radio station.

“We are excited about all the moves that have taken place and will take place over the next few months,” says Shaw. “Having a new space for our communication faculty to be located on the quad integrates them into the vibrancy of our campus. Their space includes new studio space for their students.  Having new facilities will provide nursing students state-of-the-art technology and space to grow.  We are so blessed by the many donors that have made the Larry R. Moore Nursing and Administration Building a reality!”
