ORU is building a new dorm—our first in 42 years! The goal is to have the dorm ready for move-in by the fall 2019 semester. Click here to join alumni and friends whose contributions will help us build it!
Widening of Evelyn Roberts Drive
A new guard shack was installed at the entrance to Evelyn Roberts Drive in mid-July. The roadway has also been widened. This work began in May and is complete!
Nursing SIM Lab
The Anna Vaughn College of Nursing has a new SIM (simulation) lab. Several rooms (former offices/storage space) on the third floor of the Graduate Center were remodeled to create a high-fidelity conference room, eight examining rooms (primarily for health assessments), and a storage area. Nursing students from sophomores to seniors will use this space.
Intramural Sports Park
Students now have a new place to play intramural sports—and the rugby club has a home. The field on the southeast corner of 81st Street and South Lewis Avenue (adjacent to CityPlex Towers) accommodates softball, soccer, sand volleyball, football, lacrosse, and rugby. The facility also features bleacher seating, restrooms, parking spaces, and a walking trail that circles the park. The ribbon for this brand-new Sports Park was officially cut on October 23, and the field was inagurated with a rugby practice and the intramural football championship game!
