Abilene Hall’s Engineering Space Dedicated

On Tuesday, August 29, 2023, a dedication ceremony for Abilene Hall took place.

Over the past two years, Abilene Hall has been under construction, being retrofitted to house HSU’s engineering program. An additional 7,000 square feet were added to the building’s southern elevation. The first floor houses lab space for hands-on learning, while the second floor contains lecture halls, a computer lab, a student lounge, and data center. The third floor will continue to be under construction as it’s prepared to house HSU’s upcoming nursing program, scheduled to open in 2025. Read more about the dedication.
