With the opening of VSU’s new student union, several offices have relocated.
These relocations have led to empty buildings around campus this semester.
Offices such as Student Life and the Dean of Students have moved from Hopper Hall into the new union as the building brought forth more office spaces
However, plans for their old offices are already underway.
According to Robin Vickery, Director of Student Life and the Student Union, the office of Housing and Residence Life will soon move into what was the Student Life office in Hopper Hall.
Students are now purchasing their books from the newly located two-story bookstore in the student union that moved from Patterson Street.
Now that the bookstore has relocated, there are plans for its old location as well according to Bethanie Brogdon, Director of University Stores.
“Communication Arts will get that building, and it is much deserved,” Brogdon said. “That is probably one of the most spread out curricula on this campus. They have nothing of their own, and they finally will.”
The Tech Shop has also relocated no longer residing in Langdale but now on the bottom floor of the new bookstore.
As for any news about the old Tech Shop location, nothing has been confirmed.
According to Brogdon, several ideas rumbling around, however, nothing is definite for that location either.
According to Vickery, most offices in the new union are offices that were housed in the old student union.
Vickery also explained that the old student union provided only about 37,000 square feet of space compared to the new 113,604 square feet in the new union as listed on the Student Life website.
Other offices now located in the union include Sodexo, Catering, and a new office for reserving meeting rooms in the student union.
