It is no secret college is more than just classrooms and textbooks. Rose State’s upcoming Student Union will be a place that will bring students together to connect, collaborate and learn.
This summer, the Student Union will open its doors. It is expected to contribute to the campus’ success in many ways.
The first floor of the facility will offer one-stop services like enrollment, bookstore, student engagement, advisement and food services.
A ballroom and several conference rooms will be available for students and the general public to hold meetings or workshops on the second level. Having a Student Union will give students a better option for student services.
When students have a place to hang out and study on campus, they will not have to seek other
alternatives. Rose State’s Student Union is set to positively impact student satisfaction and future
recruitment. The longer a student remains on campus, the greater their chance for academic growth and success.
The Village Residence Coordinator Jenny Minfberg, said the Student Union will pair nicely with the The Village Clubhouse. She thinks this will give students a variety of places to study, socialize and eat.
After all, the relationships a student creates while on campus will help form a professional network that can follow them beyond graduation. Numerous opportunities will be available to develop connections amongst peers, faculty and workforce leaders, with workshops and lectures being hosted in the facility.
Student life is an important part of a university experience. This experience can be found in Rose State’s Student
Union, coming soon.
Students are excited about having somewhere new to link up, and this will be the location where students go to see and be seen.
