One element of Sustaining the Promise calls for redeveloping the heart of campus to create a more vibrant and compelling learning environment for students of all ages. Here’s a look at some of the progress being made as we begin to implement the strategic plan.

Baggot Street Café

One of the most exciting changes is the new Baggot Street Café, named for the Dublin location where Catherine McAuley founded the first House of Mercy in 1827. The expansive café and gathering space on the second floor of Heffernan Hall opened this fall, serving delicious, healthy food, from early morning until late in the evening.

Developing our Lakefront

Much has been done to make the lakefront more accessible for recreation and events. With an attractive new access way, a permanent event venue in place, wireless Internet access, bathroom facilities, and more, the lakefront was primed and ready for Alumni Weekend activities and several weddings this summer.

These improvements are part of a larger vision to more fully utilize Saint Joseph’s lakefront as a revenue-generating venue. With breathtaking views of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range, across beautiful Sebago Lake, it’s an ideal spot for meetings and retreats, weddings, and events of all kinds.

New Science Labs

The addition of four new laboratories and several relocated and renovated labs in the Mercy Science Wing will dramatically increase capacity for teaching and research. The new labs include:

  • A new Advanced Science Lab for organic chemistry and upper-level bio and chemistry majors, with eight protective fume hoods
  • A new, dedicated Microbiology Lab, providing a controlled environment for use by nursing and bio students
  • A new Instrument Lab, enabling students to do quantitative analysis and develop critical lab skills
  • A relocated Anatomy & Physiology Lab and a partially renovated Chemistry Lab

Construction of a fourth new lab, dedicated solely to faculty/student collaborative research, will be completed next year. The much-anticipated Research Lab will allow projects to be set up and left up, facilitating longer-term research.

Newly Renovated Stone Barn Event Venue

The century-old restored structure on the Pearson’s Town Farm property is the centerpiece of the College’s vision for developing educational offerings and businesses focused on sustainable agriculture. The hope is to transform Pearson’s Town Farm into an integrated set of sustainable agricultural enterprises that will serve as both an educational resource and an innovation hub for the region’s farmers and food producers.
