Widener Building for the Future

August 13, 2012

By Erin Sylvester ’13

Construction has officially begun on the new building that will house Widener’s communication studies, computer science, and informatics programs.

This three-story, 18,000-square-foot building will be located on the corner of Memorial Field between Wolfgram Memorial Library and Academic Center North. It will feature a TV studio, editing equipment, and computer labs, and conference and research rooms. Construction is expected to be completed by August 2013 so that the building will be ready to welcome students and faculty when classes begin.

Please see the memo from the Public Relations Department to find out how the construction will affect campus life in the short-term. Also, look for stories in the upcoming fall Widener Magazine about the building and a feature article about the media informatics and business informatics majors, two programs that will prepare students for the future of technology.
