Carl Johann Memorial Library Classrooms
Two classrooms in Johann were updated in the summer of 2019 with new carpeting, new lighting, new ceiling tiles and upgraded technology to keep our students on the cutting edge. This was possible due to several alumni donors.

"Classroom of Tomorrow" in memory of David R. Predmore '63Click to View Photos
A business classroom in the Herrick Foundation Center received upgrades in memory of David R. Predmore '63. The room was dedicated during Homecoming 2018. The Classroom of Tomorrow provides an innovative and integrated technology classroom to conduct experiential learning activities. Students in Business Strategy, for example, work in teams to do an online simulation of operating a shoe manufacturing business. The student teams are able to connect their computers to a common TV monitor at their tables and collaborate on possible solutions. This environment allows the faculty to be more connected with students when teaching from the center of the room and when interacting with student groups.

Men's Basketball Locker RoomClick to View Photos
Through the generous donations of the Stratton Family, Hannibal Regional Hospital, Advance Physical Therapy, The Tim Fischer Family and H.B. and Tammy Turner the men’s locker room was renovated during the fall of 2018. "This is our home. I told the team at the beginning of the year that this locker room is the most important place in our program. Not only becuase of the investment that our alumni and donors have made to our program, but also because this is the space where a team comes together more than any other. We recruit men who want to improve. The men's basketball locker room is a place where they want to be, and in turn, it is a place where they want to spend time with each other as they come together to improve." –Aaron Hill, Head Men's Basketball Coach

Wood Residence Hall
Through an estate gift from Mary Eck '40, Wood Residence Hall received several updates over the summer of 2018 including new flooring, bathrooms, paint, a new kitchen and an updated lobby.

The addition of the recreation and wellness center was completed and a grand opening was held on February 20, 2016. The addition of this center has been instrumental to enrollment growth and student retention. Physical Education and some Health Science classes are held in the Mabee Center along with the center playing host to several intramural sports, along with student organizations using the space for events. The Mabee Center employs a total of 20 students. KT Seth '19 said, "The Mabee Center has been amazing to students here on campus because not only has it given non student athletes a place to work out and feel comfortable, but it has given so many students a job on campus as well. It has also allowed a couple students such as myself to have leadership roles and opportunities."
