Senator Jeffrey Klein and Monroe College President Stephen Jerome cut the ribbon on the third floor of West Hall
On Monday, June 27, at 3:30pm Monroe College President Stephen J. Jerome will cut the ribbon on an innovative new learning space in West Hall on Jerome Avenue near Fordham Road.
The newly-acquired and newly-renovated third floor of West Hall, which is located at 2467 Jerome Avenue, will house The School of Allied Health Sciences, consisting of several major areas of study designed to prepare students for employment in the rapidly-growing field of health services. This will include clinical and science labs, a student lounge, computer rooms, and nine new classrooms.
"This fabulous new space reaffirms our long-standing commitment to quality education,"’ said President Jerome. "We’ve gone out of our way to ensure that this facility is not only functional, but fosters a comfortable learning environment that is visually pleasing."
The 16,000 square-feet of space is a unique blend of brick with an array of aesthetically pleasing warm-toned walls that are adorned by numerous modern, contemporary, and traditional paintings. Contemproary artist Keith Haring’s popular work distinguishes the student lounge and the computer room.
"Students are going to love to learn there," beamed Vice President for Academics Stephen Waldow, Ph.D. "In addition to some of the classrooms that are almost like lofts in Greenwich Village, we’re truly thrilled with the state-of-the art labs and computer rooms."
