Facilities

Heath-Hardwick Hall is the home of the Literature and Language Arts Department on campus. The offices of all Literature and Language Arts professors are conveniently located on one side of the Heath-Hardwick building, giving students easy access to professors should they require assistance.

Heath-Hardwick Hall shares a building with Longview hall, home of the Business department. A virtual tour of the Heath-Hardwick/Longview Hall building can be viewed on the campus map.

The classrooms in Heath-Hardwick range from smaller, secluded classrooms that facilitate discussion in classes with fewer students, to large classrooms with theater-style seating built to comfortably accommodate classes with a higher number of students.
