A New Home

Construction is underway on the new home for the Office of Personal & Career Development.

To equip Wake Forest students for their future career endeavors, we have spent the past year assembling an exceptional team of professionals in the areas of career education, employer relations, mentoring, professional development, leadership and entrepreneurship.  Our new office space will bring together our 26 talented individuals from various locations on campus.  An architect and an interior design specialist, both with expertise in education design, has developed a unique office space designed to encourage collaboration as well as provide exceptional service and support to students.

Located on the second floor of Reynolda Hall in the middle of campus, and down the hall from the popular Magnolia Room, our state-of-the-art workspace design will enable our staff members to work with students in a welcoming, open environment.  The 7,000 square foot “hall” will house a new Innovation Station training room for groups of up to twenty-five, six rooms for counseling appointments, open meeting and collaboration space, and contemporary work stations and glass offices. Construction is on-track for us to move in in early August and to open the doors to our students when classes begin at the end of August.

Above is an arial view of the new space. Below are photos of the new space in the early stages of renovation. Over the next six weeks, I will post additional pictures, progress reports and details of the new office as our new home takes shape. Please stop back to check out the progress!
