To celebrate the beginning of two new campus construction projects, Wentworth Institute of Technology will be holding a groundbreaking ceremony for the Flanagan Campus Center and the Center for Sciences and Biomedical Engineering. These projects mark a key milestone in Wentworth’s history.
These two facilities will promote the academic and social development of Wentworth students. The first project, the Flanagan Campus Center, will serve as the hub for student life, providing an exciting, student-focused environment through innovative programming and much-needed space for activities, clubs, and organizations, as well as a rejuvenated food services operation. The second project, the Center for Sciences and Biomedical Engineering, will create new labs with cutting-edge technology and improved space for students and faculty.
Congressman Stephen F. Lynch, a 1988 graduate of Wentworth’s Construction Management program, is the keynote speaker for the event. The program will also include other government officials and leadership involved with the projects, including Mayor Thomas Menino; State Representative Jeffrey Sanchez; City Councilor Michael Ross; benefactor William H. Flanagan; Wentworth’s president, Dr. Zorica Pantić; and chairman of the Board of Trustees, David Kruger.
The projects are expected to be completed for the opening of the fall 2012 semester.
