COLLEGE STATION — A new design for the Howard Hesby Student Atrium renovation project has been unveiled and is in its final stages of planning.The atrium will reflect the three academic departments located in the Kleberg Center and provide a student-oriented place where faculty and students can interact, and where students can feel comfortable and at home. The proposed design introduces updated furnishings and lighting, and the space will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology including video monitors, WiFi for lap top computers and hand held devices. The existing pyramid glass ceiling structure will continue to provide natural lighting to the trees and plants in the existing planters.
Construction is planned to begin in May or June 2011 and be completed this fall in time to kick of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences centennial celebration.
