      The time has come to see photos and learn more about the top floor in the building, the 3rd floor. The 3rd floor has always been extremely busy with E-Board meetings, poster making, and student leaders coming together and socializing, however it has never been considered the most practical or functional use of space. To get from one office to the next you had to walk in a large circle, providing little area for collaboration among the organizations.
      With the renovation, the Campus Engagement staff are excited to see just how much this area will transform student life and involvement at Bryant. The empty gap that was enclosed by windows in the past will now be filled in, and will provide small work areas for group meetings, a place where E-Boards of all student organizations can get together to discuss their next program or project. Also, all major organizations on campus except WJMF, who is housed in the Koffler Communications Complex, will have their own office on this floor, as opposed to scattered throughout the building. This should provide each major organization better opportunities to learn from each other, communicate with one another, and potentially cosponsor more programs together. Finally, there will be a 12 person conference room on the third floor, expanding upon what past Bryant Center users may remember as Room 3. This new and improved space will actually overlook the pond on campus, and include smart technology for our organizations and community members to use.  
New Conference Room on the 3rd Floor!

     Throughout the past month we have taken you on an in depth walk through of each floor, provided you with construction photos, and tried to share as much information as possible. We hope that you are getting excited for the Grand Opening of our renovated Student Center on September 27th. Moving forward, we hope to showcase details of new services, programs, and opportunities that will be afforded to you in the new building as well as show you photos of our progress. Beyond that, we hope to provide you with more insight from the professionals who have worked tirelessly to get this building where it is today. 
     Look out for another contest next week and remember to remind your friends to check out the new photos and posts! Enjoy your weekend everybody!
