SUNO to Commemorate Restoration Thursday

Bashful BuildingAfter nine years, multiple moves, a building demolition, 45 FEMA trailers, three new buildings and three building renovations, Southern University at New Orleans is restored to full capacity for the first time since Hurricane Katrina inundated the campus with water.

The University will commemorate this milestone at 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014 on the front lawn of the Emmett. W. Bashful Administration Building.

State and local officials, including New Orleans Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu, are scheduled to attend the event, which marks the completion of renovations in the Bashful Building, the Leonard S. Washington Memorial Library and the University Center. Attendees will have an opportunity to tour each building and witness SUNO Chancellor Victor Ukpolo roll the first ball in the University Bowling Alley since Hurricane Katrina.

“I am happy to report that SUNO is back and is bigger and stronger than ever,” Chancellor Ukpolo said. “Now that the University is whole again, we are focused on moving forward by introducing new degree programs in coming months and starting new construction projects. We hope everyone will help us celebrate this significant moment in our history.”

In June, the University celebrated as the last FEMA trailer was removed. While on campus, the trailers housed the colleges, departments, classrooms and auxiliary offices. As refurbished buildings reopened and new buildings were brought online, the students, faculty, staff and administrators moved into permanent structures. The trailers began to be decommissioned in December 2013 with the opening of the Lake Campus Multipurpose Complex.

Looking ahead, the University expects to open its new $3-million Small Business Incubator Center next spring. In addition, several new buildings are in the design phase: Natural Sciences, Art & Humanities, Education & Human Development and the Millie M. Charles School of Social Work. Bids are expected to go out on the Social Work building in November.
