Cowley finishes expansion to its Mulvane Center


Cowley College recently completed the expansion to its Mulvane Center by remodeling the town’s former post office building.


MulvaneThe remodel consisted of converting the former 5,000 square foot post office building into four classrooms, three offices, a tutoring room and a student lounge complete with USB compatible electrical outlets so that laptops and cell phones can plug directly into the wall.

An additional 30 parking spaces were also added to the school’s Mulvane Center. The total cost of the remodel was $341,000.

Slade Griffiths, Cowley College vice president of academic affairs, feels this is a real positive for the college’s students in Mulvane.

“The expansion at the Mulvane Center will provide an opportunity for the college to better meet the student needs by providing more and diverse classes, better enrollment services and better places for the students to study,” Griffiths said.

Compton Construction was the General Contractor, Cox-Kent and Associates the Electrical Contractor, Cooks Heat and Air the HVAC Contractor, Reed Plumbing the Plumbing Contractor, Jerry Austin Excavating the Dirtwork Contractor, RBP Painting, Satterfield Drywall, and Cornejo was the Concrete Contractor. 

Each contractor played a pivotal role in seeing that the work would be complete prior to the students arriving for classes on Aug. 16.

“I would like to especially thank these folks because they put us at the top of their priorities to get us done on time – we wouldn’t be in the building without their support,” Crouch said.
