The Students’ Association office is undergoing renovation and is being relocated to improve operating efficiency and accessibility to students.
Rodney Johnson, president of Students’ Association, and the incoming 2014-2015 Executive Cabinet collectively made the decision earlier this year to renovate the office as well as the entire Student Life section of the campus basement.
Johnson, senior finance major from Odessa, believes the office’s renovations will allow students to better connect with ACU’s student organizations.
“The vision behind remodeling the Students’ Association office is achieving improved efficiency, increased student interaction and more exposure to the Students’ Association,” he said. “It is our goal to reach as many students as we can, and the new office is designed to help serve that purpose.”
Rudy Garza, chief communications officer of Students’ Association, also believes the remodeling will facilitate greater student involvement and provide more effective service to the student body.
“We’ll have more effective co-working spaces for both Congress and the Executive Cabinet,” Garza said. “The layout will be similar, with the addition of an administrative workroom for congressmen and an office for each executive officer. These improvements will greatly improve the workflow efficiency.”
Garza, junior marketing major from Corpus Christi, is also excited about the new location of the office.
“Unlike our old offices that were hidden in the back corner of the Campus Center basement, the new offices will be at the forefront of the basement, surrounded by other Student Life offices.”
Johnson said ACU is fully funding the project as a part of the entire Student Life basement remodeling. Johnson expects the project to be completed between late September and early October.
Students’ Association will be housed downstairs in the Center for Christian Service Leadership, rooms 26 and 28.
