NEWLY RENOVATED CAMPUS SET TO WELCOME BACK STUDENTS THIS FALL
Last summer, Post University invested $5.1 million in campus renovations. But we didn't stop there! It's truly been yet another summer of renovations here on our Main Campus, and we're excited to see several projects nearing completion as the fall semester approaches. Among the most notable renovations are:

.New Commuter Student Lounge (Pictured): The former home of the Instructional Design Department in North Hall is in the midst of its transformation into an all-new Commuter Student Lounge!

Dorm Renovations: West Hall has had new HVAC units and vertical blinds installed in each room. South Hall has had new windows, vents, vertical blinds, and HVAC units installed in all rooms, and the new main entrance is almost complete. New landscaping around both buildings will begin soon.

Walkway Additions and Beautification: Painting of the new stamped asphalt walkways on upper campus has advanced throughout the summer, and will be completed by August 15th. Work on a new patio behind the library has begun, grass has been planted along the new walkways, and new benches and tables have been ordered for upper campus. In addition, seven new Sugar Maples will be planted on upper campus beginning August 13th to complete the border along the walkway leading through upper campus.

We invite you to take a trip to campus in the near future to check out the progression of these projects and more!
