The expansion of the Countryman building was a 16,000 sq. ft. addition at a cost of approximately $3.2 million. The addition included classrooms, administrative/faculty office space and student soft space and opened December 2012.
A 6,000 sq. ft. addition to Keese Hall provided a beautiful and efficient multipurpose space for large events. The area was built on the south side of the existing structure and opened in 2014. Keese Hall houses Office of the President, Academic Affairs, Workforce and Economic Development, video conferencing, open computer labs, classrooms and faculty offices. This important expansion for campus and community use will seat 300-400 people, with access to high quality breakout spaces in the existing Keese Hall.
In response to continued enrollment growth, Rhodes State College continues to pursue its vision of building a Center for Medical Innovation in Education in downtown Lima. Future planning and collaborative efforts with the internal and external communities will take place.
