Students make their way to class while passing the Archer Health and Human Services building. The building is set to be completed next month.

Fall 2016 saw the campus in a buzz of activity with the start of two big construction projects.

The Hunter Strain Engineering Labs and Archer Health and Human Services Building both began construction in the fall due to initiatives set forth by ASU’s Master Plan goals created by Administration and Texas Tech University Systems.

"Construction is going well…in budget, on schedule and great quality," Director Cody Guins said. "We have great partners in the architects, designers, engineers and contractors who are instrumental in the success of these projects."

The AHHS building will be the new nursing building. Completion of this building is expected in January 2018, meaning classes will not be held there until the fall of 2019.

The HSEL will house the engineering program and allow it to take off. It will be completed in May 2017 and classes are expected to begin by the upcoming fall.

"I know there are a lot of engineer majors here at Angelo State but I also know there is not a strong engineer program," Rebecca Thorpe, freshman, said. "When there is not a good program from the start, that could deteriorate the amount of people wanting to come to Angelo State for engineering. So, hopefully, with these new buildings, Angelo State can build up a program and produce amazing engineers and nurses."

The new buildings were made possible by generous donations from James and Lois Archer and an anonymous donation for the HSEL building.

Both of these projects, plus the press box construction may be viewed in time-lapse at:
