We understand that your campus life experience needs to be one that connects you to the university. As you matriculate toward graduation we want you to be able to reflect back on all of the wonderful memories that made campus life exciting, insightful, and educational. As a part of the excitement, I would like to share some information about the new WSSU Student Activities Center. The new facility features a cutting edge concept of design which brings fusion between traditional college student unions and recreation centers. The planning process for the new structure started several years ago with a committee that included students from diverse groups. The new facility will feature an extended food court with popular franchises, and a new campus hall to accommodate student forums, performances, panel discussions, lectures, council meetings, movie nights, the River Run Film Festival, etc. This will be a place where students can host programs for up to 600 people and is designed to be dividable to host multiple groups, and will have the latest technology. The Student Activities Center will also include an indoor track, a game room, lounge space on multiple levels, study rooms, and much more! There will be a fitness center, group exercise studios, basketball courts, and shower facilities. The Student Government Association (SGA) worked hand in hand with administration to ensure the needs of the students were met. The cost of the new facility is approximately $32 million. The Student Activity Center will instantly become the epicenter of campus! Our combo facility will open for business in June of 2013.
We are proud of the students, faculty, and staff who have contributed in many ways to the important activities, programs and services of the University. It is our hope that each of you will actively pursue the many opportunities available for an exciting and rewarding student experience. We are here to assist with the development of well-rounded students and scholars. Please feel free to contact my office with any questions you or your parents have regarding Campus Life at WSSU.
