Anna Maria College celebrated the official opening of the newly renovated Bishop Flanagan Campus Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, August 28. The $4.2 million renovation includes revamped seating areas, new handicapped accessibility, and newly replaced windows, doors and roof.
The completely reimagined interior is designed to enhance the student experience with new lighting, assorted seating layouts for single dining and group socializing, a fireplace feature wall, new Audio/Visual system, ramps, and outdoor dining patios. Altogether the renovations make for a more functional and expanded space. The fall campus also features a new football field. Several other campus upgrades are ongoing.
The improvements were funded by Anna Maria, the dining services company Sodexho and two Worcester philanthropic groups, the George I. Alden Trust and the Stoddard Charitable Trust.
