Trustees, alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of CBA gathered on Wednesday for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Learning Commons.
The Learning Commons was part of CBA’s Capital Campaign Our Mission, Their Future.
“We are gathered, once again, to celebrate another demarcation point reached for Our Mission, Their Future,” President Brother Joseph Jozwiak said. “A couple of weeks ago, our students and faculty celebrated the grand opening of the Learning Commons, the Innovation Lab, and three new classrooms. It is incredibly gratifying to see so many of them making use of the new learning areas, the technology, and the many new opportunities presented here.”
Features of the new learning commons…
- Technology integration in the instructional areas featuring 40 Chromebooks for student usage, video and audio conferencing, and dual 83-inch presentation monitors
- Collaborative work/study spaces with shareable presentation monitors at each station
- Conference room for student use
- Data driven book collection
- Diverse seating options that meet the study needs and habits of all students
- Reading and social space
- Video and Audio production studio with a green screen
- Extended hours from 7:15 AM – 6:00 PM, Monday through Thursday and 7:15 AM – 3:15 PM on Friday
“It is with great joy and thanksgiving to God and on behalf of the students entrusted to our care-those currently enrolled at the school and those who will grace our halls for decades to come-that we cut this ribbon and ceremoniously open this space,” Brother Joseph said.
