Glatfelter Hall is back!

During the past few years, the College has made significant investments to enhance our academic facilities, including the construction of a state-of-the-art science center, improvements to Musselman Library, and an upgrade to the home of the biology and psychology departments, McCreary Hall.

As we continue our commitment to enhance campus facilities this summer, our year-long renovation of Glatfelter Hall has come to a close. Classrooms, seminar rooms, and student study spaces have been added to the ground floor. The first floor also received a major overhaul of both office and lab spaces, and now houses the sociology department.

With the completion of the project, Glatfelter Hall retains its historic charm with modern day improvements. Check out the photos and share your thoughts in the comments section!
