Dig dig dig that crazy foundation! (or, Where’s Mike Mulligan when you need him?) -- James H. Cone Construction of Little Rock has begun digging in the area south of the Seay Student Center, site of the planned expansion. The 14,000-square-foot addition to the student center will include a new health and fitness center, a new community conference center and increased dining capacity for students.

When you're doing a renovation, the first steps just aren't very glamorous. Usually, there's lots of dust, lots of noise, and lots of stuff that has to come down. Well, we're in Phase I of the Seay Student Center renovation project, and that's exactly what we have going on now. The cafeteria is being gutted for the expansion, and the debris are going down a chute on the east side of the building. Out with the old, as they say.
The renovated student center will be 14,000 square feet larger, with a new health and fitness center, a new community conference center and a larger cafeteria.
Trustee Hall will complete the "quad" of residence style apartments on campus, and will be built on the east side of the three existing apartments.
