[Photo Tour] Check Out The New Health And Human Development Building

After two years of construction, Penn State’s newest building is taking the final steps to completion, and appears to be on track to finish in time for the fall semester. The building, dedicated to facilities for Health and Human Development, features a host of classrooms, labs, and offices.

The newest addition, a 77,800 square-foot building on College Avenue adjacent to Old Main, features a stunning window stretching the length of the building facing College Avenue.

The entrance-way manages to be just as stunning as the building’s large window facade, with a large suspended staircase connecting the building’s three floors.
