After graduation concluded, the University and construction team quickly put up fences and begin the construction to transform our student center. By just taking a walk around the building, one can see walls are being removed and insulation ripped out. The entrance by the music room and south dining hall is barely recognizable and one of the windows of the bookstore has been removed in order to take unnecessary supplies or debris out of the building. With all of these major changes, access to the building has been completely taken away unless you are a part of the construction team. All of these major changes can be seen in the photo gallery. Below you can see the demolition of the stairs that leave from behind the information center and head to the Interfaith Center.

     Just recently, we were able to receive pictures from inside the building and see what construction looks like indoors. Check out more of the photos from the third floor in the photo gallery and see if you can guess what parts of the third floor you are looking at! 
 
 
     It's crazy to think that all of the presentations, discussions and hard work have finally paid off and we are in the beginning steps of construction for our new student center. On the last day of finals I was lucky enough to enter the building one last time and say a final good bye to all the memories created in the building. You can see some of the sights of the final walk through in the slideshow on the photo page, but this photo was my favorite one, showing one of the busiest places of the BC completely empty.

     With the final walk through and completion of the 2012-2013 school year comes the end of one chapter, and the beginning of the next. Stay tuned for more exciting highlights as we continue through the renovation process!
