Student Basement Renovation Project
Student team works to renovate basement to improve space and strengthen student success.
A team of students from the College of Business and Economics (CBE) and the College of Art and Architecture Interior Design Program are working together to transform the basement of the J.A. Albertson Building into the Albertson Learning Center (ALC) – an innovative, modular space for CBE students to work, study, and learn.
In Fall 2015, a marketing class and an interior design class began their own projects to reinvent the basement of the J.A. Albertson Building. As they worked, they found support from students, faculty and staff in the college and were encouraged to continue the project even after their classes were over.
Students from each class worked through the Spring 2016 semester to finish the design based on responses from the students and faculty who will use it in the future. Along with this design will come a basement full of new furniture and equipment, a brand-new accounting lab, glass-walled conference rooms and even a fireplace.
In the Fall 2016 semester, the students have shifted their focus to working with the administration of the CBE to take the project through the final stages of the process, including finding funding for the program.
Please stay tuned to find out what’s new with the project!
