Campus Center construction complete

The basement of the Campus Center is finally finished.

For the past few months, construction workers have been drilling, tearing apart the basement floors and painting, among other things. An elevator was installed in early December, and so far, the Office of Student Life and Students’ Association have moved into their spaces.

The construction was small part of the Vision In Action campaign, which includes renovations to Bennett Gymnasium and construction of the Halbert-Walling Research Center, the Onstead Science Center, the planned on-campus football stadium and a new track and soccer complex.

Many of the students on campus are pleased to hear that the basement is now open.

“Even though I never went downstairs regularly, I feel like now that construction is over you’ll see more people down there,” said Colleen Weeks, sophomore nursing major from Fort Collins, Colorado.

Kevin Roberts, vice president of operations, could not be reached for comment but in previous press releases Roberts stated that all construction was scheduled to be done by December. As of right now, all construction in the campus center is on track.

The only thing left to do is for the remaining occupants to move into their finished offices.

Taylor Crumpton, sophomore psychology major from Coppell and Morris Hall representative for Students’ Association, says now that SA is all moved in, it is anticipating an increase in student traffic.

“We have officially moved into our new location.” Crumpton said, “We hope that by having our offices in the basement of the campus center students will begin to take notice and interact with SA on campus.”

Although construction in the basement is now complete and people are moving into their new offices, work on the Campus Center roof is still unfinished.
