Feedback Opportunities for Schine Feasibility Study on Nov. 2
On Thursday, Nov. 2, the Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience and Campus Planning, Design and Construction will again host campus engagement opportunities with the architectural firms conducting the Schine Feasibility Study. The study aims to assess the current space and reimagine Schine Student Center. The renovation and reimagining of Schine Student Center is an important part of the Campus Framework.
Opportunities to provide input throughout the day include:
Schine Graffiti Wall, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Schine Atrium
As students come in the building, they are encouraged to provide input on what is missing from Schine Student Center. Last session, more than 100 students filled the graffiti wall with ideas for the space.
Drop-In Roundtable, 4- 6 p.m., First Floor of Bird Library
This more in-depth engagement opportunity allows campus community members to share ideas based on prompts provided by the architectural firms. Students, faculty and staff can stop by at any point between 4-6 p.m. and engage for as little or long as they would like. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation provided.
Schine Graffiti Wall, 8-9 p.m., Inn Complete, South Campus
Another graffiti wall will be placed at the Inn Complete, the lodge facility on South Campus for graduate students, faculty and staff, to collect ideas for the space. Students must be at least 21 years old.
“The campus community’s feedback is vital to the success of the Schine Feasibility Study,” says Dolan Evanovich, senior vice president for enrollment and the student experience. “Schine Student Center was identified as an opportunity for growth and renovation in the Campus Framework, and as we explore how the center can further enhance the student experience, we especially encourage students to attend these opportunities and share their input.”
In addition to the campuswide engagement opportunities, feedback has been gathered from hundreds of campus community members through meetings with student leaders and student organizations, residence hall tabling and focus group sessions. Campus community members can also offer ideas and suggestions for Schine Student Center by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
