Two Campus Buildings Receive Major Upgrades

Maharishi University of Management has reached another milestone in the ongoing renovation of campus buildings in line with its 5-year strategic plan. The most recent upgrades focused on dormitory Hildenbrand Hall and its neighbor Verrill Hall, which now houses classrooms and offices.

Hildenbrand Hall, the main residence hall for women, was the subject of major mechanical and cosmetic transformation. New rooms were created including a kitchen and dining room, study rooms, a TV room, a lounge, and a fitness room. “We wanted to create more communal living space where students can get together,” said David Todt, chief administrative officer.

The improvements include the laundry room and bike storage with new tile floor, washers, and dryers; a renovated bathroom; newly painted and carpeted hallways; and an upgraded meditation room. Many of the rooms are decorated with bright and lively colors including the walls, floors, curtains, and furniture.

The main entrance received a new canopy, landscaping, and sidewalk. Two sample student rooms were also renovated with new paint, carpet, and furniture. The next phase of improvements is focused on the rest of the student rooms, additional bathroom upgrades, and a new roof.

“We are all inspired by the beautiful renovations taking place at Hildenbrand Hall,” said MUM President Dr. Bevan Morris. “We are so grateful to Jeffrey Abramson, Toby Lieb, Doug Greenfield, David and Marilyn Todt, and Everett Day for the beautiful support they have given and their excellent and lively design. I am sure that all the present and future women students of our University will enjoy it very much.”

A large section of Verrill Hall has also been completely renovated, including four classrooms that accommodate the growing Computer Science Department and 30 new offices for the Computer Science Department as well as other administrative personnel. New windows and skylights, new carpet, and upgraded heating and air conditioning make the offices more comfortable. An anonymous donor made a substantial gift to fund most of the renovations to Verrill Hall.

In addition, two science labs were renovated that are used by the Health and Physiology Department. The two existing video studios were upgraded and a new sound studio was added for the use of the Media and Communications Department.
