Commuter Lounge, Clinical Simulation Center and More Campus Improvements

Sage’s Maintenance and Facilities teams led several summer projects that have improved the look, feel and function of the Sage campuses for the 2019-20 academic year.

 

A new commuter lounge on the Troy campus

A new commuter lounge on the Troy campus is an inviting space for commuter students to relax, study and socialize. The lounge includes a computer lab, kitchen and common area. Christine Collard Devereaux ’56 and Estelle ’68 and Gregory Condon led the fundraising initiative for Vanderheyden Commuter Hall.

John Paine Building

Paint is being removed and copper restored on the fascia of the John Paine Building in Troy, thanks to gifts from former trustees Jennifer Flather ’86 and Kimberly Peregrim ’93. The library fascia will be restored next.

 

New Nursing Simulation Lab

A second clinical simulation lab and classroom will provide a hospital atmosphere for training nurses, physical and occupational therapists and dietitians. Construction on the lab, in the area known as the Kellas Quad in Troy, has started, and the Nursing program used the space for lectures this fall. The clinical simulation lab expansion is supported by a major gift from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.
