Campus Improvements Forum Staged at SWOSU


The SWOSU Student Government Association recently held a campus improvements forum, the first in a series of three, on the Weatherford campus.

SGA senators were present, along with other SWOSU students and employees, as Director of the Physical Plant Rick Skinner, Director of Residence Life Chad Martin and Director of Information Technology Services Mark Engelman discussed recently-completed campus projects as well as plans for future improvements. Students then asked questions of each guest speaker.

Some of the highlights discussed included the renovation of SWOSU’s Main Street property currently housing the Weatherford Area Chamber of Commerce, the addition of sidewalks and ADA accessible ramps on campus, increased Wi-Fi bandwidth, and residence hall lobby and bathroom renovations. A campus recycling program, Event Center additions, continuation of the Fine Arts Center upgrades, further residence hall remodels, and more internet integration were all discussed as future projects.

The SGA plans two more forums this year dealing with weapons on campus and university childcare. All SWOSU students, faculty, and staff will be invited to take part in the forums.
