Forrester Hall renovations underway at ESCC


Enterprise State Community College’s beloved Fine Arts Division Chair Ken Thomas is saying goodbye to his former classroom, but saying hello to something much better.

In April of 2019, renovations began on Forrester Hall, which had not been updated since it was originally built in 1977.

With the updates, ESCC’s Fine Arts Department will now have the latest classroom technology and all the essential needs for a fine arts building. Forrester Hall will also have proper lighting for the gallery space, a new dark room for traditional photography development, and a new light room for experimenting with photo shoots. A new Music Theory Room, a new Keyboard/ Piano Lab, and a modified Black Box Theater are also in the works.

The music rehearsal space will be redesigned and will include updated audio/ visual and recording equipment to allow students to receive instant feedback of their rehearsals as they strive for perfection and in their quest of learning.

“Having updated facilities, the latest classroom technology, and the essential needs of a fine arts building is going to enhance the outstanding instruction our students are already receiving,” Thomas said.

“With the updated facilities, it allows you to grow more as a fine arts student and also allows the instructors to have the ability to grow the programs,” said Fine Arts student Samuel Elijuan Brown of Elba.

Enterprise State plans for Forrester Hall to be completed by the beginning of the fall semester.
