Summer projects heating up at Cowley


Cowley College’s Admissions OfficeWith the first day of fall semester classes at Cowley College slated to begin on August 15, the College has been busy with renovations to its main campus in Arkansas City.

Those interested in enrolling for summer classes will see a new look at the College’s Admissions Office as remodeling of that area is nearing completion. Along with new carpet and paint, walls have been torn down and new ones put up as the Admissions Office and Business Office will be separated by only a partition wall. This will allow for a one-stop process where students can visit with admissions and financial aid representatives before having the option to pay their bill all in one location.

Kristi Shaw, executive director of enrollment management, has new furniture set to arrive that will match the new carpet and paint, while a new testing center located in the basement of Galle-Johnson is also nearing completion.

“It looks amazing,” Shaw said.

According to Todd Ray, Cowley College maintenance and grounds supervisor, the maintenance crew have been working hard to complete the renovation by August 1.

The maintenance crew and members of the college’s information technology staff have also been busy moving the Journalism Department and Cowley Press Student Newspaper offices from the Kerr Technology Building to the upper lever of the Brown Center.

Individuals visiting Student Affairs will notice new paint in those offices as well as the Nelson Student Center Game Room and Movie Room. New furniture for the Game Room has also been ordered and will arrive prior to the start of the new semester.

Work on installation of new campus video surveillance camera systems recently began, while APCO Graphics, Inc. will be on campus on August 10 to begin designing new exterior signage to beautify the campus and ease wayfinding. 

During the construction projects the college remains open to serve the need of its students. Those interested in enrolling for the fall semester can call 620-441-5303 or visit
