Students, faculty, staff and alumni recently gathered at Spring Arbor University’s Flint site to celebrate the grand opening of a new student commons.
Designed to give students a place to relax and work on projects outside of class, the new student commons was created out of an old classroom, thanks to donations from students, faculty and staff.
“Our faculty really rallied to donate furniture and decorations for the space, and a few key students were instrumental in designing and painting the room. We were blessed to see our community come together around this exciting project,” says Josh Wymore, executive director of SAU’s east region sites.
The Flint site staff hopes that the student commons will serve more than just students. “We’d love to see the Flint community benefit from this cozy space, as well. It’s a perfect location for Bible studies, game nights, and parties. Our Flint community should see this space as its own personal living room,” says Wymore.
The student commons will remain open and accessible to the public from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday – Thursday, and 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Fridays.
