WICHITA FALLS – Midwestern State University’s new Gunn College of Health Sciences and Human Services building won’t be your grandma’s health sciences building.

The $40 million project—$29.5 million will go to construction costs—will center around a four-story, 85,000-sf building set to open in December 2018 or January 2019. It will house the largest college on campus.

An atrium wall will rise up four stories, much of it glass, in a vertical-centric building.

An 80-student room on the first floor, the largest classroom in the facility, will be kind of a classroom in-the-round—a theater of sorts—and will open up to the main lobby so it can be used as an event space.

Besides the first-floor classroom-in-the-round, architectural plans for the first floor include a learning stair, collaborative student and lounge space, a food kiosk, a “see and be seen” area and a catering kitchen.
