Education college to begin move back to O'Donnell Hall

The move back to New Mexico State University's education building, O'Donnell Hall, which was damaged by a fire last December, will take place in two stages beginning over the university's spring break March 27-31.

Class relocation schedule

College perseveres in aftermath of fire

The first and third floors and east end of the second floor will be ready for reoccupancy during spring break. The more severely damaged areas of the second floor, where the fire originated, will be reopened by mid-May, announced College of Education Interim Dean Michael Morehead.

The Moving Company, a local agent for Allied Van Lines, will handle the move. Returning to O'Donnell this month are the curriculum and instruction department, Learning Resource Center, Educational Research Center, Education Dean's Office and NMSU Preschool. Faculty will reoccupy their offices on O'Donnell's first and third floors.

The spring break move will empty the engineering college's Goddard Hall, which temporarily housed these offices and many classes normally held in O'Donnell. Goddard had been slated for renovation beginning Jan. 1. The Goddard project now is set to begin April 1.

Until mid-May the counseling and educational psychology and educational management and development departments will stay in their NMSU Cole Village offices, and the undergraduate advising office will remain in the Educational Services Building. The NMSU Head Start and bilingual preschools will stay in off-campus locations for the remainder of the spring semester.

Information about the relocation of classes is posted on the NMSU education web page at http://www.nmsu.edu/EDUCATION/relocation.html and also available by a link from the college's home page at http://www.nmsu.edu/EDUCATION. Students affected by the move also will receive information by e-mail.
