The highly visible new facility at UAFS houses various health and science departments including Nursing, Radiology, Surgical Tech, EMT, OBGYN and Dental Hygiene. Previously scattered throughout campus, the new building joins all of these programs together under one roof. The design promotes interaction between all by using centralized study alcoves, transparent classrooms and space planning that encourages collaboration. Warm materials and an open light-filled atrium provide a central hub that fosters energy and welcomes students, visitors and faculty.
