Student Center Renovation Update: March 22, 2012

Spring has arrived, and the view outside from the top floors of the Student Center is filled with blooming trees, flowers, and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Inside, the view is filled with progress. Floors, walls, and framing continue to be installed. The third floor is being transformed into a modern conference and theatre facility that is enhanced by the gorgeous, unique architectural elements of the original Student Center.

Outside, scaffolding lines the back wall of the facility. Crews will soon begin tearing down parts of the exterior wall. What is now brick will be replaced by floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views of Randolph’s back campus and the nearby mountains.
