In January, the Board of Trustees announced some really exciting news about campus improvements! Along with announcing the renovation of the Hermann Athletic Center to allow for more wellness and athletic space for students, the relocation of the bookstore and expansion of the student center to include an updated dining hall, coffee shop, student game and lounge space in addition to student government offices, we also announced that we will begin the process of relocating the President’s house closer to campus.
We wanted to keep the Peace community informed on the process of relocating the President’s house closer to campus. This morning, the sale of the house was complete.
President Townsley notes, "I have enjoyed living at the President’s house in North Raleigh, but I am excited the Board of Trustees has decided that the William Peace University President should be living closer to downtown. This is a return to tradition for Peace as housing for the president in the past was always located near campus prior to its present location. We are in the process of looking at different options now and will update you on the location of the new home when a decision is made."
