UT Tyler Expands With Ornelas Activities Center

Ornelas Activities CenterThe University of Texas at Tyler has responded to the expanding growth of its nursing program with the recent addition of the Ornelas Activities Center, Gregg Lassen, UT Tyler vice president for business affairs, announced.

“We are delighted with the opportunity to provide space for the future growth of our university,” Lassen said.

Purchased by UT System in June, the UT Tyler Ornelas Activities Center is located on Old Omen Road just south of the University Boulevard and Spur 248 intersection.

Current plans are for the building to provide additional space for nursing faculty and students at the Tyler campus.

“The space in the building will help us to support our record growth over the last two years in the college,” said Dr. Linda Klotz, dean of the UT Tyler College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

The building formerly housed the Tyler Area Senior Citizen Association.
