The Reed expansion is now open to accommodate a record number of engineering students.
Although the previous Reed renovation created much-needed space for current engineering students, the continued rapid expansion of the program – from 75 students last year to 105 students this year – necessitated additional, updated space.
The new expansion houses three new labs and classrooms with whiteboard walls and ample study area for engineering students.
The Department of Engineering plans to make the previous Reed renovation accessible only to engineering students, but the new lobby areas will be open for public use.
“We’re just happy to have more space,” said department chair Shane Ritter.
