Many changes are taking place on the campus of CUAA.

From the outside, students and visitors will notice new sidewalks and parking lots throughout the campus. Highlighting the new pavement is beautiful landscaping in the center of campus. Trees, shrubs and flowers now flow from circle drive leading to The Chapel of the Holy Trinity.

To accommodate wedding and other large events, a patio was formed on the south side of Earhart Manor. The Manor also received new landscaping that welcomes prospective students and other visitors to campus.

Over the summer, major renovations took place inside residence halls as well as the cafeteria and Nest, an on campus cafe. New flooring, furniture and other amenities now make for a more comfortable environment for students.
