Student Center Renovation Update: February 13, 2012

Construction crews are busier than ever bringing Randolph College's new Student Center to life. The facility is seeing rapid changes as workers put in floors, walls, and windows. On the main level, the framework for "The Street," can now be seen. The walkway will run from the Main Hall entrance of the Student Center through the facility to the outside. The new and improved Skeller (cafe/grille) will be on one side of "The Street," while seating areas will be on the other. An eating area will be housed where the old Skeller was located, and the rest of that floor will be filled with open seating areas. 

On the upper floors, workers have begun to expand window openings, and flooring has been placed. Other framework has also begun.

Keep checking the blog for more photos on the progress, and go to to see previous updates.

This photo shows the upper floors of the back part of the Student Center facility. The Skeller can be seen through the openings in the flooring.

Workers are enlarging window openings. The new windows will add a bright, airy feel to the Student Center.

An eating area will take the place of what was once the Skeller.

"The Street" will be between the metal framework shown here.

The area below this opening will house seating and other social spaces. The furniture will be easily moved to provide areas for dances and other events. The WWRM (the student radio station) will be located above the opening and will look down on the dance floor.
