It’s officially open for classes
From its incredible atrium to its state-of-the-art classrooms, the Ryan Center for Business Studies is spectacular.
Last minute touches on interior spaces for classes
Complete with site Christmas tree this classroom is finished awaiting final furniture. Monitors are up in our data labs. With monitors and floor to ceiling white boards these classrooms allow for easy group collaboration.
New offices are being outfitted with new furniture.
The atrium shows off the wood accented Dore Hall windows and ceiling panels. – Looking west, the new steel arch is accented by the College’s eternal flame. From different angles the flame has orange, red, and blue hues to mimic that of a real torch.
Large lecture hall is taking shape and almost ready for a coat of paint while second floor classroom is the first to be carpeted
Gothic Arch Installed
The “gothic arch” installed at the west entrance of the new Arthur and Patricia Ryan School for Business Studies was designed with a couple of different purposes in mind. The architects at SMMA, while designing the building, were looking for a way to link the traditional gothic architecture of Harkins Hall with the more contemporary design of what will become the signature building of the newly integrated east campus. The Ryan School of Business’ tower at the west entry along with the newly installed gothic arch, continues the design rhythm of Harkins Hall that the architects in 1917 used to inspire the most iconic building on the campus. The arch at the Ryan Center is a free standing 18 foot wide structure standing 30 feet high and weighing approximately 5 tons. It will serve as the location for the building name which will be installed within the coming week. The arch outline will be lit with “LED” lighting concealed in the steel flange facing west.
Mill work panels are being installed along the addition’s second floor
The curtain wall for the finance lab and mesa continues.

A mixture of old and new at the Ryan Center for Business Studies
The original brick work will also be seen in the interior of the building as well. A blending of the old brick and the new glass will make for another great addition to the campus.
Exciting changes happening on east campus
The glass wall is in place on the back side of the Center for Business Studies. An outside patio area will also be constructed here, complete with access to take-out window from cafe.
Second floor bridge photos show all the amazing light that will be in the building from the many sky lights. You can see the rounded portion of the building when looking up from the second floor.
