Central Penn College - Campus Construction

 

Campus Construction

Find out what's going on in Summerdale!

During a special town hall meeting on January 15, Dr. Scolforo announced two construction projects taking place on the Summerdale campus. This webpage will provide updates to the campus community about these two exciting additions to the Central Penn family. Make sure you check back frequently, as new updates will be posted weekly.

The Underground

In Dr. Scolforo's first weeks on campus, she had comment boxes installed in all campus buildings and off-site locations. Students filled these boxes with their thoughts and suggestions to make Central Penn College an even better place to learn, live and grow. One overarching theme from many of the suggestions from our residential students was the need for a place to call their own—outside of their apartments and townhouses.

Dr. Scolforo and the construction committee took student comments to heart when designing The Underground, our new student center! The Underground will be a place for our students to kick back and relax, stay in shape or practice their dance moves. The Underground will feature a dance studio, fitness center, student lounge, offices for staff and Student Government Association (SGA) officers and even a 250-seat multi-purpose theatre. This multi-purpose theatre can be used for presentations, performances, gallery openings, student activities, fitness classes and more!

Construction on The Underground has begun! Check this page for video updates of the construction progress and some behind-the-scenes photos of the progress. We're very excited for this new addition to the Summerdale campus, and we hope that you are too!

Health Sciences Building

The Health Sciences Building, replacing the former childcare center on Valley Road, will feature new state-of-the-art educational labs and facilities for our Allied Health students. The building will be completely renovated to include new medical labs, classrooms, faculty offices, conference area, student lounge and a computer lab.

The building will feature two entrances, accommodating our residential students walking from the main part of campus and our commuter students with a designated student parking lot adjacent to the building. Like the rest of campus, this building will feature wireless Internet access to enhance student learning.
