August 2016 Alumnae eNews: Summer Projects and Campus Improvements

It has been a busy summer here at OLP. Our Facilities team, along with some great vendor partners, have worked diligently to complete enhancement projects on campus.

We recently completed the repair and restriping of our gym floor. Our student athletes will be welcomed back to a gym that shouts “Home of the Pilots!” We are working to renovate Vill Inn to create a multi-use space that will support our Robotics and Engineering programs. Further, and thanks to our donors’ support, all classrooms have new sit/stand furniture, which cultivates a more collaborative classroom model.

Our most extensive project has been enhancements to Carondelet, which included installing 3-phase power, HVAC, a four-stall ADA Ladies restroom and a single-stall unisex ADA bathroom. We re-poured the entrance ramp and replaced the front door in order to become ADA compliant. The first floor of Carondelet will be completely ADA accessible at the completion of this project. Completion of the Carondelet project is expected by mid-August 2016, just in time for Alumnae Reunion Weekend!
