The Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM) held an open house event recently to officially unveil their new open-air pavilion. This facility will serve as a multi-purpose space, seating up to 224, and will be available for student and staff events, teaching opportunities, recreation, and more.
This project was approved by the ACOM Board of Directors in mid-2022, and groundbreaking on the pavilion took place Fall of that year. This pavilion is conceptualized to also include a still-in-progress community garden, which will include fruit and vegetable-producing plants. This addition is the campus’s latest expansion that will offer unique opportunities for learning.
The new pavilion and community garden were envisioned and planned with the assistance of many faculty and staff. This project represents ACOM’s continued commitment to its core values through the development of innovative areas for enhanced learning and campus life.
