On Oct. 30, Southern’s former president Gordon Bietz took students and alumni on a virtual tour of the Bietz Center as part of the Virtual Alumni Homecoming Weekend event.
Student Association (SA) president and senior psychology and business administration major Sheryl Kambuni was one of the hosts for the virtual tour.
“I’m really excited about this new student center because I feel as students, we don’t really realize the impact of it until it actually comes to be,” Kambuni said. “Because right now on campus, there aren’t that many places you can hang out all week long with your friends. ”
Kambuni had previously participated in a private tour of the Bietz Center with other SA officers a few weeks earlier. She said she wasn’t sure how it was going to compare with the plans, but she was very happy with the result.
“Coming into it, I was kind of concerned,” Kambuni said. “I’ve seen the building since it was a parking lot… I also saw the plans on the side of it and was like, ‘Can what they envisioned fit in that space?’…Walking into the actual building, it was really cool to see all the spaces and imagine what they’re going to look like when they’re done.”
