Many new, exciting campus developments and renovations are happening during the summer at Belhaven University, the biggest being Fitzhugh Hall.
Starting from the ground and up, construction has already started in and around Belhaven’s 100 year-old building. Workers are currently clearing out the old piping, equipment and units from the mechanical room under Fitzhugh.
New windows and other newer items that were put in the east wing last December are being taken out and recycled.
The oak trees were trimmed to make space and prepare for the upcoming construction on Fitzhugh.
The many people that pass by each day will get to experience the transformation that Fitzhugh will soon go through.
The Belhaven Science Department will have a new home in Fitzhugh’s east wing when it is done. To accommodate the science departments needs, the east wing will extend its walls and include a new lobby with an east entrance, new classrooms, laboratories, and faculty offices. The west wing will also receive some renovations, but mainly to the interior portion.
The main demolition of Fitzhugh’s east wing will happen within a few weeks from now.
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) were on campus and lending a hand as part of a service project while they were at Belhaven for an annual FCA conference.
Students painted fences behind the cube, painted railing all around the campus and cleaned bleachers in Rugg Arena. Thank you to FCA for their selfless acts of service!
