Campus Community Invited to Schine Feasibility Study Roundtable Discussion on Oct. 4
The campus community is invited to engage in a roundtable discussion about the Schine Student Center Feasibility Study on Oct. 4 from 6:30-8 p.m. in 304 Schine Student Center.
At the roundtable, students, faculty and staff are invited to provide insights and ideas on future possibilities for the current space. The architects leading the feasibility study from Mackey Mitchell Architects and Ashley McGraw Architects, P.C., many of whom are alumni, are interested in hearing how to make the Schine Student Center a more student-centered destination.
“I highly encourage students to attend this unique opportunity to meet with architects who are helping dream up a student center that would better serve our student body and provide the optimal student experience,” says James Franco, president of Student Association.
The roundtable will be led by the architectural firms, which will prompt participants with questions to guide discussion. Participants in the roundtable discussion will be asked to reflect on the current Schine Student Center and imagine what would make the space even better.
Before the roundtable on Oct. 4, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., students are also invited to stop by the “Graffiti Wall” in the Schine atrium to provide input. There, students can visit to share quick thoughts and ideas with the architects.
A second campuswide roundtable discussion will be held in early November. Date, time, location and other details of this roundtable are forthcoming. In the meantime, ideas and suggestions for Schine Student Center can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be available for the roundtable. If you have requests for accessibility and accommodations, please contact Nancy Cooper at email@example.com.
