|CSC Giving Itself a Visual Makeover
|Carl Sandburg College has recently completed a number of interior updates as a part of the first phase of its Campus Refresh project at the Main Campus in Galesburg. CSC began this update in the College's classrooms and faculty offices this summer and it was completed at the start of the fall semester.
New furniture workstations were installed in faculty offices and new classroom furniture, featuring a more comfortable option of adjusting the seat to the desk, was purchased to replace the College's more than 40-year-old furniture. A fresh coat of paint and new carpeting has also been installed in all classrooms.
Phase two of the Campus Refresh project will consist of replacing all common area furniture, adding art around campus, new carpeting in Building A, revamping the Cafeteria in Building E, and renovating the second floor of the CSC Annex in downtown Galesburg to house the massage therapy program. Phase two is projected to be completed by next summer.
The cost for phase one totaled $250,000. Funding for the Campus Refresh project came from operational funds through the College such as Protection Health and Safety funds which cover anything that improves the health and safety of the constituents that come into the College.
Jim Graham, associate dean of social and behavioral sciences, is excited to take advantage of the improvements made to the College in phase one.
"I'm delighted with it. Our [faculty] offices are the way we introduce ourselves to people and the new appearance will help gain and retain students," said Graham. "When people see how nice the classrooms are, it will speak highly of the College."
The furniture and equipment, including computers, removed from the College was donated to local schools.
"The K-12 schools are the first people we ask when we update furniture or computers. There are four or five schools in our 18-school area that have agreed to take the furniture from this phase of our refresh," said Samuel Sudhakar, vice president of administrative services.
