AB4 Construction Nears Completion
Academic Building Four is under construction at the intersection of 20th Street and Avenue I, and will be the new home for the history, library science, and psychology departments. It will also house the Student Advising and Mentoring Center and a new Computer Services lab.
The Board of Regents approved the construction of this 61,070 square-foot facility in August 1999, with an estimated cost of $8.5 million. The land being used for the building was once used for five departmental dormitories.
John McCroskey, the overseer of the building project, said the building process is behind schedule at the moment, but the building should be completed by the end of October 2002. ...[t]he building should be ready for use in January, after the furniture and the necessary equipment are installed.
