TWU College of Nursing Moves Into New Home

7/31/02


DENTON — The College of Nursing at Texas Woman's University is scheduled to move into its new home, the recently renovated Arts and Sciences Building located near the intersection of Oakland Avenue and Third Street, on Monday, Aug. 5.

A reception to commemorate the opening of the 48,163-square-foot, three-story Arts and Sciences Building will be held Aug. 22 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. The event marks the completion of the $4.5 million renovation project that began two years ago.

The Arts and Sciences Building will house faculty and administrative offices for the TWU College of Nursing, which averages 1,400 students and is the largest nursing program in the state of Texas. TWU's nursing program graduates 13 percent of Texas' new nurses annually, and its students have a first-time pass rate of 96.9 percent on the nursing licensure exam.

Along with faculty and nursing administrative offices, the Arts and Sciences Building also contains a nursing lab, 13 classrooms, three seminar rooms, three computer labs, a lecture room, the Center for Nonlinear Research, a research and reading room for graduate students and a student lounge with study space. Classrooms are wired to accommodate high-tech instructional equipment, which can be controlled from each classroom's lecture station.

Randall Scott Architects of Dallas is the architect of record for the project. Constructors Inc. of Dallas is the general contractor.
