GroundbreakingWith broad smiles and shiny shovels, Salisbury University, its friends and supporters broke ground today on the Patricia R. Guerrieri Academic Commons (GAC). At 224,071 square feet, the $111.4 million facility will be the largest academic building in SU history. Home for  a sorely needed new library, with it comes a reconfiguration of University classroom, research and study space in a manner that planners predict will change campus dynamics. The GAC is a conscious attempt to transform learning at the institution—in ways which will not only impact how students and faculty interact, but, potentially, how the Lower Eastern Shore relates to the SU academic community.
