Residence Hall Renovations

SHREVEPORT, La.—Centenary College has embarked on an ambitious summer project of renovations and new construction totaling more than $2 million. Included in the projects are renovations to the Gold Dome and residence halls, construction of Riggs Plaza and the Leadership Fountains, and various smaller projects around the campus.

More than $150,000 worth of improvements has already been made to the athletic facilities with $575,000 budgeted to make even more improvements. "A lot of the projects we will be starting are behind-the-scenes type improvements that are going to go a long way in improving both student and athlete morale" said Dr. Tom Tallach, Director of Athletics.

"We are investing $1 million alone in the residence halls," said Bill Ballard, Vice President for Finance and Administration. "The students will see updates in the bathrooms, bedrooms and lounges." Furniture will be replaced, new flooring and new water heaters are just some of the other renovations, he added. "We are even cleaning the air system ductwork, so there is a lot of work to be done in a few short months."
