Welcome to Fall 2014, Vanderbilt.
Student Centers is excited for another exciting year on campus. Changes can be seen everywhere in our facilities. Here are just a couple of highlights.
The Student Life Center has undergone some major changes to the Commodore Ballroom. Check out the new carpet (black and gold) and the new video capabilities. We have increased the size of our screens and added new HD projectors as well.
The biggest change is at the corner of West End and 21st. The new College Halls are open and we are excited to be a part of the action. The new Kissam Center houses new meeting space, two great rooms, and the Kissam Market, home to the Kitchen. Be sure to check it out!
Student Centers is proud to announce that Alumni Hall was recognized by the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) during “The Honors: Community Builders Awards Ceremony” at the annual ACUI conference held in Orlando, Florida in early April. The facility was awarded a Facility Design Award of Excellence, which encourages excellence in the design of student-centered facilities that support campus community building and student learning. Angela Covington and Chris Reed were both present at the conference, and along with Robert Simmons, Principal of Bruner/Cott and Associates, Inc., were excited to accept the award in person. This is the second time since 2008 that Vanderbilt University, along with Bruner/Cott, has been recognized by ACUI for a Facility Award of Excellence (the Commons Center).
The project, completed in the summer of 2013, has provided the campus with more options for meeting space, dining, and recreation. Every space inside Alumni Hall underwent an extensive renovation. In the basement, students have access to a new exercise room and tutoring center. The first floor includes a new cafe, lounge, and writing studio. On the second floor the Memorial Room underwent thorough updates, and is joined by a new classroom and reading room. The third floor houses the new Institute for Digital Learning. The increase in meeting space is a response to the increased student engagement and leadership on campus and complements the renovations of Sarratt Student Center that occurred during the summer of 2012. The space will also complement the new Warren and Moore College Halls, opening this Fall.
Final exams are quickly approaching! In between studying stop by Rand Lounge from 5pm-8pm on April 23rd, 24th, and 28th for free coffee and select treats while supplies last!
