A Vision for the Future of Georgian Court

master-plan-easel-drawing

The future of Georgian Court University is one of growth and change. How the university will evolve is at the heart of the university’s Strategic Compass and a new campus master plan, which is in the works.

On Thursday, September 12, architects from Kimmel Bogrette shared an early vision of what is possible for Georgian Court. The campus master plan means rethinking current buildings, restoring one of our historic entrances, and adding a much-needed new academic building were some of the highlights. There were also talks of modernizing the residence halls, creating more social and soft spaces for students, and even the possibility of making the Casino a central gathering place for student clubs, organizations and eateries.

Right now, the university is considering these ideas and more as we set course for the future. This first master plan presentation is just the beginning. Please watch your campus e-mails for information about the next phase of planning and discussions.
