The student body at the University of Arkansas has grown by more than 50 percent since 2004, prompting a 20,000-square-foot expansion of the campus health center that is slated to break ground Monday.
expansion of the Pat Walker Health Center will be a big help to
students and faculty, there is a downside: Construction of the new
classroom space will eliminate parking for patients. Patients may
instead use paid parking in the Garland Garage or along Maple Avenue
or student permit lots.
Mary Alice Serafini, associate vice
chancellor for student affairs and executive director of the health
center, said the additional space is necessary to meet demands.
expanded facility will further extend the reach of the health center
by offering more comprehensive and efficient access to services and
programs designed to help students stay healthy and maximize their
academic potential,” Serafini said.
