Center for Student Engagement
The Center for Student Engagement, or CoLab as we are calling it, will be a hands-on, collaborative, creative space.
The room layout would be both welcoming and configurable, designed to facilitate group-based creativity and design thinking, while also givings students and student organizations a space to convene.
There would be a place for everyone: a comfy living-room-style area, configurable tables to spread out large project designs, spaces for small group collaboration, a small conference room, and movable glass walls and white boards to define spaces and share ideas.
We envision the CoLab to be a space alive with creativity.
Phase I : Designs created to determine layout of the space, construction needs, and furniture selection.
Phase II : Construction to remove drop ceiling, modernize lighting, paint walls, and replace flooring.
Phase III : Replace Furniture
