Design Review (Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents)—Provided input along the way and attended formal comment review sessions.
Project Feedback/Input to Architects—Provided opportunities to meet with the architects and campus officials through presentations at Talley Student Center and two visits to the offices of Duda/Paine. Eight-seven student came to the architect’s open houses.
Planning Committees —Provided student representation and input on the Building Committee, Marketing & Special Events Committee and the Groundbreaking Ceremony (8/16/2011) Committee
