Fuller Theater: In November 2009, the historic playhouse/lecture hall in the Administration Building was transformed into a state-of-the-art educational theater. The Fuller Foundation provided a $500,000 grant for new amenities such as catwalks, new sound system, assistive listening devices, winches above the stage, box seating, a control booth, light board, design studio, scene shop, costume shop, a small green room, and smart classroom technology.
