Contact: Paula M. Davis

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Western Michigan University's campus community will get an update on design concepts for several building projects planned for the University's new South Neighborhood during two information sessions Thursday, Nov. 29, in the Bernhard Center.

Design experts from CannonDesign, Perkins+Will and Stantec Architecture will present final design concepts for three projects:

• South Neighborhood housing;

• Student center and dining facility; and

• the South Neighborhood sub-campus master plan.

The information sessions are set for 4 and 6 p.m. in Rooms 105/106/107 of the Bernhard Center.

Revitalizing the South Neighborhood, which is bordered on one side by Stadium Drive, was given a high priority last fall. When completed, the project will meet major new-building needs as well as create a new campus gateway that is more connected with the community and offers eye-catching appeal to prospective students and campus visitors.
