J-U-B Engineers Sponsor New Study Space for CEE Students
Oct. 7, 2021 — The local civil engineering firm sponsored the renovation of a new study space, called the J-U-B Engineering Student Study Complex. The new facility opened mid-September, replacing an older study space on the second floor of the Engineering Laboratory building.
The 1,000-square-foot space will include a main room, with two couches and two study tables, and three conference rooms: two smaller ones and one larger one, each complete with a TV with computer hookups. The space will retain the lockers, along with the fridge and microwave. The addition of storefront windows to replace cinderblock walls, a higher, open-concept ceiling, and black-and-white décor will give the space a more modern, industrial feel.
Many USU alumni work at J-U-B and recall spending long hours doing homework in the old study room. Zan Murray, area manager of the Logan office and a USU alum, came up with the idea to help renovate the space.
“USU has been a tremendous resource for great employees at J-U-B for decades,” said Murray, ’98, ’03. “We felt that renovating the CEE study room would be a great way to say thanks to the college and benefit thousands of students for years to come.”
