Welcome to Humanities Gateway!


The School of Humanities is pleased to present the winning design of our new building - Humanities Gateway. This exciting design was created by the Design/Build Team of Fentress Bradburn (architects) and Hansel Phelps (contractor). To be built on the site just opposite the Humanities Instructional Building, this will be the fifth building in the Humanities quad and will include such elements as a 110-seat auditorium and a film screening room in addition to a wonderful courtyard for events and receptions.

The site is being prepared this summer. The week after commencement three modular classroom buildings were moved to another location. By the 1st of August the other trailers had been demolished. Now that all of the debris has been cleared away things will seem to move a bit slower. We'll start to see construction equipment and activity in September. During the Fall Quarter we will have the official ground breaking ceremony. The building is scheduled for completion in June 2009.

Preliminary drawings of the new building are included here. Some things have already been changed and the final concept drawings will be posted on this site when they are received. Also, take time to look at the pictures taken of the progress thus far. We will be photographing the construction on a weekly basis and you will be able to view those photographs from this site. We hope you will enjoy this bird's-eye view.
