New Campus Sign

Artist's rendering of the new Entrance Sign

 

A new campus entrance sign has been constructed at the intersection of West Street and Ravine Parkway.  It is illuminated at night, and combines stonework with attractive plantings.  The project also offers better sightlines up and down West Street compared to the previous sign.

Sign Plan Drawing

 

This shows the general layout of the Entrance Sign - not in the triangle where the old one was, but off to the edge of the north side of the intersection.

 

Alumni Hall

A major renovation is underway on Alumni Hall.  This is a two-year, complete renovation job, with the building scheduled to reopen for the fall semester of 2023.  Alumni Hall started out life in 1960 as the first James Milne Library and has gone through several incarnations since then, supporting various departments down the decades.  It's now time for a full refit, after which it will be host to the School of Economics & Business and the Division of College Advancement.  

This project includes the first geothermal heating/cooling system for SUNY Oneonta, where an array of wells will be installed to employ ground heat source/sink opportunities for the building.  The building envelope will be updated and of course the interior will be totally redesigned with new offices, classrooms, seminar and meeting rooms, a fully accessible environment and other features.

This project encompasses a fair amount of terrain around the building.  To provide the ability to bring materials and heavy equipment in and out of the site, a stretch of West Dorm Drive adjacent to the building is closed for the duration of the project. 

A detailed description of the project and background historical information on Alumni Hall is available at the sub-link to the left.

Progress on the project is satisfactory - the building is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2023 and for occupation in the fall.
