DURANT – As the beginning of the fall semester approaches on August 20, a number of construction/renovation projects are under way at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
Soon to be completed in the Glen D. Johnson Student Union are a racquetball court and student lounge on the first floor, and the Health and Counseling Center on the second floor.
In addition, changes are being made in the old student union, which housed the old campus bookstore, old Savage grill, Magnolia Room, and Ballroom. The old campus bookstore will become the Native American Center for Student Success and Academic Advising and Outreach Center, with completion date targeted for September 30, 2012. ?? The old Savage grill will become the new Magnolia Room, the current Magnolia Room will become the Learning Center, and the Ballroom will be updated with IT equipment and two partitions. These projects should be completed by December 31, 2012.
Other projects under way are addressing landscaping, drainage and ADA issues on the campus loop, Fourth Street-Paul Laird Field, and Fine Arts-Russell Building corridor.
No open parking will be permitted on the loop, with all spaces being designated for ADA and visitors.
