Rankin Communications CenterThe Rankin Communications center came about through the renovation of two formerly disconnected buildings behind Mercer Hall that were joined together by the construction of a beautiful atrium. The buildings had previously held the maintenance facilities and several small offices for the communications faculty.
After joining the buildings, full office space was made available for the communications department, including two separate computer labs, offices and labs for the Triangle and Commoner student publications staff, offices and meeting rooms for the Adult and Graduate Studies staff, a large storage and wood-working room for our maintenance staff, and a medical polyclinic for use by Bryan faculty, staff and students.
The atrium in the center of the building contains several displays to honor William Jennings Bryan, for whom the college is named. At the center of these displays is a bust of Mr. Bryan, sculpted by local artist Cessna Decosimo. Photos »
