After more than a year of construction, students are getting acquainted with the new University Center in Sioux Falls. After two weeks of classes in the new building, how do students feel about the new digs?
There's hardly an empty seat in this pharmacy lecture hall at the University Center. Being able to get an education at the new and improved building has students excited.
"It's the kind of building you'd like to go to when you think about going to college," SDSU student Cara Counter said.
Many students say the new classrooms help them see their professors better.
When they take distance education classes, they say technology upgrades have improved how they interact with the instructors.
"We actually have some of our professors speak from Rapid City, and it's always nice when we have better technology so we can hear them better, the screen is bigger," SDSU student Dustin Schrader said.
"With this up-to-date technology, it's going to advance students' learning, it accommodates teachers, as well," SDSU student Chelsey Carlson said.
Students appreciate the added qualities outside the classroom.
"There's a lot more bigger windows here. There's more modern seating, the furniture is a lot cooler," Counter said.
All improvements the students hope will help them improve in school.
While classes have started, not all of the construction is complete. The research building is still a work in progress, but they're hoping to do the ribbon-cutting in March.
