The College Of New Rochelle Receives $50,000 Grant From NYS
State Assemblyman George Latimer has presented The College of New Rochelle (CNR) with a $50,000 capital construction grant from New York State. The funds will be used toward the construction of multi-media “smart” classrooms in the College’s new state-of-the-art Wellness Center, scheduled to be completed this December. In addition to the smart classrooms, the Wellness Center will include areas for conferences and seminars, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a gymnasium equipped with arena-style bleachers, competition-size basketball and volleyball courts, an interior running track suspended above the gym floor and a six-lane NCAA competition swimming pool. Other highlights include a meditation room and contemplation roof garden. The ecological design of the building as a metaphor for wellness will be eligible for certification by the U.S. Green Building Council under its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System®. Assemblyman Latimer recently toured the Wellness Center construction site.
The first Catholic college for women in New York State, The College of New Rochelle was founded in 1904 by the Ursuline Order. Today, it comprises the all-women School of Arts & Sciences, and three schools which admit women and men: the School of New Resources (for adult learners), the School of Nursing and the Graduate School. The main campus of the College is located in lower Westchester County, 16 miles north of New York City. The College maintains five other campus locations in New York City.
