New Trinity Academic Center Dedication And Ribbon Cutting This Saturday

We have been tracking the development of the new Academic Center at Trinity Washington University since 2013. Now we are happy to report that there will be a Dedication Ceremony and Ribbon Cutting for the center at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 4, 2016. The 80,000-square foot, LEED certified building features state-of-the-art science and health labs and classrooms and was delivered on time and under budget. Check out this time-lapse video of the center being constructed.

I am a big fan of Trinity because they focus on making higher education accessible to populations that are traditionally under served. The majority of their students are first-generation college students, 90 percent are African-American or Hispanic and in-coming freshman have a median family income of $25,000. More than half of their students are from DC, and Trinity educates more D.C. residents than any other private college or university in the nation. Congrats on the new building – well done!

Trinity Washington University was founded in 1897 and is located at 125 Michigan Avenue NE.

About a year ago we posted about Trinity Washington University‘s, plans for the construction of the Trinity Academic Center, a $40 million, 80,000-square foot building that will feature state-of-the-art science and health labs and classrooms. Recently, on Wednesday, September 10, over 100 students, faculty and staff gathered to celebrate the start of construction of the new Center. Once complete, the center will replace the Science Building, built in 1941; and in fact will be the first new academic facility on Trinity’s campus since 1963, when the library opened. The new center is viewed as a stepping stone to making renovations to Trinity’s Main Hall, which is the primary academic building on campus and is more than 110 years old. Congrats Trinity! Trinity Washington Unverstity is located at 125 Michigan Avenue NE.

One of the things we love about living in Brookland is the close proximity to many institutions of higher learning. One of these  stellar universities is Trinity Washington University, founded in 1897, and located at 125 Michigan Avenue NE. I am a big fan of Trinity because they focus on making higher education accessible to populations that are traditionally underserved. The majority of their students are first-generation college students, 90 percent are African-American or Hispanic and in-coming freshman have a median family income of $25,000. More than half of their students are from DC, and Trinity educates more D.C. residents than any other private college or university in the nation.

Recently Trinity announced plans for construction of the Trinity Academic Center, a “$40 million, 80,000-square foot, LEED certified building that will feature state-of-the-art science and health labs and classrooms…The building will include eight laboratories for biology and chemistry, four laboratories for nursing and the health professions, and twenty classrooms of varying configurations equipped with the latest instructional technologies.” $10 million towards this project has already been raised and the school has set up the Campaign for Trinity’s Second Century to raise the remaining $30 million by 2014. Once complete, the center will replace the Science Building, built in 1941; and in fact will be the first new academic facility on Trinity’s campus since 1963, when the library opened. The new center is viewed as a stepping stone to making renovations to Trinity’s Main Hall, which is the primary academic building on campus and is more than 110 years old.
