Numerous campus improvements underway

The SDSU Facilities and Services Department has been quietly making progress on a number of

construction projects outside the more obvious Residence

Halls and Union expansion.

Throughout the summer, improvements and changes were made in many areas of campus. The architecture program took over the drill hall in Depuy Military Hall for temporary use as studio space. Six art studios were built into the third floor of Scobey Hall. Larson Commons also saw some changes throughout the summer. A C-Store was added on the lower level, and, according to Assistant Vice President for Facilities and Services Dean Kattelmann, the TRiO will also be moved to Larson.

Facilities and Services also spent the summer making improvements to campus landscaping. Several areas saw improvements including Jackrabbit Village, which Kattlemann said received all new landscaping. There are also plans to place new plants around Caldwell Hall as well. Kattelmann also said that the entrance to campus on 9th Street has been finished.

“What we’ve done this this summer is, and I hope people recognize this, is to put a lot of work into landscaping,” Kattelman said.

The Facilities and Services Department is working on several other projects around campus this fall as well.
