As promised, the topic of this blog is our new “digs.” Today, we are officially moving across the hall to our new office. The “new” is part of the Iowa Hall renovation which includes a new Admissions office, a new space for Sammy’s Café, and some major upgrades to our general seating area (our “student union” feel).
Thanks to a great president, great vice-president, and numerous others, we truly got everything we could have asked for (and a whole lot more) in our new space. Gone are the days when our student employees fold t-shirts and make flyers on my desk – they now have plenty of room to themselves. We have roughly three times the space, an extra office, and enough storage that we can finally start to have everything in one place. For the past several years, we’ve had 3.5 storage closets and a little of everything spread across campus. Now we have almost all of it in one spot.
There are still some minor details to be finished up in our new office and the construction outside the office is still in full swing, but we’re certainly excited about today, and excited for everything to be finalized in the next few months with the new seating and new Admissions office.
As for us, we’ve got Mary in the front, and in the offices we’ve got Nick (Admissions Advisor), Sharon (Housing Coordinator), and myself. As for the view in the new offices, that’s not bad either (see below). So when you get the chance, stop by to say hello and get the grand tour.
