"It's exciting but it's also a big undertaking," reports Suzanne Mellon, College of Health Professions dean. "Everyone's involved on at least one moving committee. We have teams for everything - communications, records, labs, you name it. We're hoping to have everything in place by August 23."
The College's new 48,480 square-foot home "is a perfect blend of new and old," says Mellon. "It reflects where we've come from and where we're going."
