This summer, the College of Engineering renovated a large portion of the Anderson Engineering Building to accommodate a new 915-square-foot tutor center complete with wrap-around glass dry-erase walls, upgraded lighting, computer work stations and new furniture.
The renovated space also includes a new smaller meal prep and vending area with three vending machines, tables and chairs, sink, counter space and two microwaves. The remodel also created a new headquarters space for student clubs and associations. The new student leadership space will accommodate eight student organizations, each with its own desk, computer and storage space. The new facility will also have a conference room with eight seats.
Construction crews are completing work on the new spaces through early August. The new facilities officially open Aug. 27. The remodel cost approximately $120,000.
