In addition to its regular summer offerings, Washington Adventist University will offer two special summer programs in 2013. Both of these are designed to enhance student success and highlight the richness of Washington DC Metropolitan Area arts and humanities offerings. These programs are:(July 7-August 8, 2013) (July 14-August 2, 2013)
Funding for the project came from the State of Maryland, which provided a $2.2 million grant with the understanding that WAU would match that amount and complete the building within a year. The University board voted the $2.2 million, one million of which was donated by philanthropists Leroy and Lois Peters of Howard County, MD.
A formal grand opening of the building is planned for alumni weekend, April 13-15, 2012.
