A chimney, originally part of Caroline Hall built in 1917, stands as a monument to ASU Founder Joseph Holley on the Lower Campus where several academic buildings will be razed as part of the reconfiguration plans.
Retiring small academic buildings in the flood plain, making the ridge area of the campus a student activity center and turning the upper campus into an academic area were some of the ideas developed by the Master Planning Committee comprised of Albany State University’s Executive Cabinet and Strategic Planning Committee members.
The proposals were highlighted as part of the unveiling of ASU’s 2018 Master Plan Phase 01 during ASU’s Fall 2009 Faculty/Staff Conference. The plans were presented by ASU’s eighth President Everette J. Freeman, Vice President in the Office of Fiscal Affairs Larry Wakefield, College of Arts & Humanities Dean Leroy Bynum and the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia Director of Planning Alan Travis.
With 4,596 students enrolled at ASU, Vice-President of Fiscal Affairs, Larry Wakefield, believes the school has a “real, planned strategic goal” of reaching 6,800 students by 2018. To learn more about each of the major projects underway to fulfill this vision, please click the Campus Master Plan.
