Three-decade-old John and Telitha E. Lindquist Alumni Center at Weber State University is famous for a number of reasons. It hosts events and gatherings for the campus groups, alumni meetings and community events. The interior design students are responsible to revamp it. The executive director of Alumni Center, Nancy Collinwood is happy with the work of the students. She adds that they have shown a professional quality in their work.
The renovation is to be held in three phases continuing for a period of three years. The first phase is almost complete. The second phase consists of designing the kitchen bathroom and boardroom. She wants the presence of the Weber State University students in the second phase too. She adds that they have been present right from the beginning. They have decorated the interior and a part of the campus. She is proud of the fact that the interior design students are their experts. The students got an opportunity to connect themselves with the exclusive activity of the university. Three different groups of students submitted their designs and received feedback. The designs were then combined together.
The interior design was meant to give everybody a feel of pride of being a part of Weber State University. The modernized up gradation highlights the architecture of the building. The focus is also on the Signature color scheme of the Weber state University. History is perfectly blended with the modern art to suit a place where everybody feels welcome. A faculty member of the interior design department, Jacie Johnson said that the occasion gave a platform to the students. They got a chance to view the professional side of their course, at the same time they learnt to handle the problems and work within budget. Last but not least, they had an experience.
A senior at Weber State University, Arrakis Rasmussen is selected as the chief interior designer for the project. She was in charge of supervision and guiding the team. The successful completion of the project is a part of her wholehearted effort. After her work, she is glad that she was a part of the project as it has helped her to gather experience. The project was extremely beneficial to her, she exclaims. She foresees the future when she will enter the hall and the boardroom as alumni and feel proud to be a part of the masterpiece.
Nancy Collinwood is impressed with the way the things have worked out. The elegance is in perfect blend with heritage of the building. Nancy elaborates that this amalgamation of the two signifies the picture the institution stands for.
After being founded in the year 1983, The Lindquist Alumni Center was a meeting place for the Wildcats both the past and the present. This week the university hosted its first event after the renovation and redecorating of the center. They want to invite everyone in the grand center and make them feel a part of the place. The designs would act as a catalyst to enhance the glory of the place.
