Tours start today!! : A Student's Perspective
Today will begin student tours of our construction sites! We are very excited to be able to get the student-body involved and finally see all the progress.
In my experience here at Facilities Management, I have been able to go out at any given time and walk through these sites and get a true feeling of what is to come. It is one thing to see it in pictures or from outside of the fence. But it only becomes real when you are able to strap on that hard-hat and see from the inside, exactly what it is that has us so excited.
As I’ve been in the construction zones documenting progress, I have gotten to talk with the contracting crews that are bringing these concepts to life.
From the first concrete pour, to the now four stories that tower over the ground which you and I used to park our cars on, projects like the new main campus residence hall have been a very exciting process to be a part of.
Of the decades and decades of alumni generations, no group has gotten to see this campus progress to the degree that current students are getting to see now. Enjoy your tours and be sure to take lots of pictures to share!
Tours will be given from April through May and the first six will focus on the new residence hall. Three tours will be solely dedicated to students, one will be for community and regional partners, one will be for university faculty and staff, and one will be a combination of people.
Guests will be required to sign a waiver before entering the sites and hard-hats will be provided!
Ask lots of questions and get all that you can out of your experience!
Special thanks to Asst. VP for Auxiliary Services, Bill Redwine for branding our hard-hats!
