Front and (Welcome) Center

It hasn't taken long for the St. Ambrose University Admissions and Welcome Center on the corner of Harrison and Locust Streets to become a welcome addition to the campus.

"I get more positive comments about this than nearly anything else we have done here of late," Sister Joan Lescinski, CSJ, PhD, the university president, said of the remodeled building that formerly housed the Eye Care Pavilion. "People tell me it provides a bright and beautiful gateway to our campus."

The building with a rotunda front section was extensively remodeled this past summer after the university assumed ownership in March. It has hosted a handful of university gatherings, but much more importantly, it has served its central purpose of providing a bright and welcoming atmosphere for potential students and their families.

"Every family that has walked in has said, ‘This is beautiful,"' said John Cooper, vice president for enrollment management. "It is in a great location, and it says we put a priority on welcoming new students, getting to know them and letting them get to know us."

The building is home to SAU's undergraduate, graduate, adult, international and transfer admissions staffs. Moving those groups from the lower east portion of Ambrose Hall helped create room for Bee Central, the one-stop shop for academic student services that opened in July.
