The new home of the University of Oklahoma engineering college will be completed on time and under budget despite statements construction might be stopped, according to the college’s dean.  

Gallogly Hall, as it is now known, has proven to be essential in promoting growth for the College of Engineering at OU.

“I believe that we will be finished in late spring or summer and potentially available for scheduling of classes next fall.” said Landers. But he said the college is still raising money to pay for the $XX million. continues “to do fundraising and we are going to get this done.”

Dan Seesholtz, director of special projects for the college said there is “no doubt” in the future completion of this center.

Landers accredits much of the recent construction success to long stretches of fair weather so, “that the contractors have been able to make really good progress.” Although the last month has been relatively wet so construction has slowed down some.

Enrollment has been up the past few years, especially for women breaking into STEM.

“We have had as high as fifty, maybe sixty percent women.” Landers said while referring to the previous years enrollment numbers. In years before this, Landers claims that, “numbers could have reached around forty-percent.”

“We hope this will recruit greater numbers, especially women and underrepresented minorities and outstanding students.” said Landers.
