1. We prepped the construction sites. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Netflix / Via gph.is The construction team cleared away trees, sidewalk, and asphalt, and discovered a vast network of underground utilities from back when this area was all residential. Now we have a clean slate! 2. We poured the foundations. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF OG VHS / Via gph.is We want our buildings to have a strong foundation - in the same way that our guiding principles form a strong foundation for the project as a whole. Quick reminder, the guiding principles of the Campus Center project are to:• Serve the Entire Georgia Tech Community• Reset, Restore, & Refuel• Showcase Georgia Tech's Accomplishments and be a Catalyst for Creative Expression• Foster Friendships and Bridge Across Disciplines, Cultures, and Interests• Promote Leadership and Involvement• Activate the Outdoors 3. We relocated the Ovation statue.

Don't panic! You can still visit the statue on the Instructional Center lawn right next to the site of our Phase I construction. 4. We modified some of our plans. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Giphy / Via gph.is Due to some challenges with the first few weeks of construction, we adjusted the timeline and sequence to accommodate delays while keeping us on track to finish everything in late 2022. 5. We blocked the path you're used to taking between the Student Center and the Campus Recreation Center.

For now, follow the arrows on the ground to get where you're going! 6. Looking forward, expect to see steel framing being put up soon.

Utility work is also needed between the Flag Building and Ferst Center for the Arts. Georgia Tech Student Center / Via c.gatech.edu This fall you'll need to take an alternate pathway to get to west campus from the Student Center. That fencing will retreat as quickly as possible, but we ask that you be mindful of the pathway changes and look up from your phone a little more often! 8. We will hold Town Halls in October to update the campus community. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Giphy / Via gph.is At these events, we'll announce more details on Phase II of the project (which will overhaul the Student Center). Be on the lookout for those dates soon! 9. If all goes well, the new Café will open in late spring!

Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Gfycat / Via imgur.com This will be our last year in the Student Center that we've known for so long. Spring will be our 50th anniversary, and we hope you'll all join us at the end of spring semester for our farewell party before the building gets its upgrade. 11.
