Blessed transition

More than 50 faculty and staff bid a fond farewell to Chaminade Hall and the Frericks Center, which for decades had housed the School of Education and Health Sciences, in preparation for the School’s upcoming move to College Park Center.

The School of Education and Health Sciences is moving its offices and classrooms to the sixth floor of College Park Center beginning this month, uniting units that had been spread between the three buildings. The School commemorated the transition with a ceremony May 7 that began at Chaminade and concluded at Frericks.

“She provided the skin and bark and shell which housed our living and dreaming for so many years,” Father Joseph Kozar, S.M., said about Chaminade Hall, which will serve as temporary worship space during chapel construction. “And we leave her to build a new home at the College Park Center.”

Nick Cardilino, associate director of campus ministry, sang and strummed his guitar as he led the procession from Chaminade to Frericks. Once there, the group listened to Kozar again acknowledge the School’s past as it transitions to a bright future in its new home.

“We see clearly the importance of both soul and body in the spiritual life as attested in the Marianist educational tradition,” Kozar said, remarking on the University’s history of support for physical health and fitness and the natural fit between the School of Education and more recent offerings in the health sciences.
