Gannon University Open House Looks To the Future
Posted: April 20, 2017
When students and their families arrive at Gannon University's
Open House on Saturday, April 22, they will see a campus in
transformation. The signs are as large as the multimillion-dollar
renovation of the Nash Library, now past the halfway point, and as
small as the new digital outdoor kiosks that will bring a message
of welcome on bright, bold screens.
There is much that is new on the Gannon campus, including the
expanded Recreation and Wellness Center, the gleaming Center for
Business Ingenuity, the Center for Communication and the Arts,
Beyer Hall and the Forensic Investigation Center. All are among the
recently opened or renovated exceptional learning environments that
students and families can tour at Open House.
Open House formally kicks off inside the Hammermill Center with
a welcome from Gannon University President Keith Taylor, Ph.D.
Following this, prospective students and families will have an
opportunity to explore new programs, initiatives, dozens of
activities, demonstrations and presentations led by Gannon students
and faculty as part of an academic expo.
Engineering students will showcase a balloon floating 70 feet
above Friendship Green in the heart of campus. This won't be your
average balloon, though. But, rather, is one they've created to
carry a payload to observe the solar eclipse this summer as part of
a NASA-funded research project.
Similar technology and research-focused presentations will greet
visitors to Gannon's Centers for Advanced Engineering and Business
In the Morosky Academic Center, laboratories will be open for
demonstrations and tours, and live scenarios like the kinds found
in actual healthcare facilities will take place in Gannon's
high-tech Patient Simulation Center.
At the beautiful new Recreation and Wellness Center, students
can experience live testing using the cutting-edge equipment in the
Human Performance Laboratory.
Students interested in a career in the expanding criminal
justice fields will want to see the demonstrations using the
firearms simulator and forensic labs at the Forensic Investigation
Center, while the Palumbo Academic Center and Center for
Communications and the Arts will host interactive activities in
Opportunities to speak with professors, department
chairs, financial aid experts and student life representatives
throughout all campus locations will make Open House an ideal
opportunity to answer vital questions and make the college search
process easier to navigate for students and families alike.
Gannon University was built on Catholic Tradition that
