Full-time freshman enrolled in the College of Science & Mathematics are taking their biology and psychology classes on the Health Sciences Campus

Freshmen in College of Science and Mathematics introduced to Health Sciences Campus

Augusta University’s College of Science and Mathematics full-time freshman students took classes on the Health Sciences Campus for the first time ever this week in preparation for the construction of the college’s new building.

On Thursday, students enrolled in BIOL 1107B-Principles of Biology and PSYC 1101C-Introduction to General Psychology took their classes in the Lee Auditoria Center, not on the Summerville Campus where the College of Science and Mathematics is currently housed. Many of those same students live in Oak Hall, the undergraduate residence hall, which is a short walk to the Auditoria Center.

This change will prepare the students for the transition into the college’s new building on the Health Sciences Campus, which is currently in the pre-construction planning process, according to college Dean John Sutherland. Groundbreaking is anticipated to occur in early 2019.

Augusta University President Brooks Keel called the students “pioneers” in helping model the future transition.
