Beginning this fall, the Honors College will no longer share space in Stephens Hall with the College of Business and Economics. The Honors College is moving to the first floor of the 7800 Building on York Road where the Bill Batemans used to be.
The Honors College had been roommates with CBE for many, but as both grew larger and needed more space it was decided that the two colleges would go their separate ways.
According to Laura Braddick, Assistant to the Dean for Strategic Communications, the move and changes were planned was about a year in advance.
“The decision to move the Honors College was announced in November 2018,” Braddick said. “The College of Business and Economics began working with TU’s facilities management to plan the renovation of ST 302 in fall 2018. The Honors College moved out of the suite in late May 2019, and construction began in June.”
The new office construction and moves will be finished by the start of the fall 2019 semester, Braddick said.
