A new student area is coming to Enterprise State Community College sometime in the month of October.
“The Hangout,” as the area is being called, will include two electronic gaming systems, cable T.V., a foosball table and a ping pong table for entertainment. The seating in the area will include two futons and two high tables.
ESCC’s Weevil Center will be redesigned to be the home of “The Hangout.” It can be found in front of the bookstore in the Lurleen B. Wallace Student Center.
ESCC President Matt Rodgers said that the creation of “The Hangout” came from the need of students to have a place to relax and enjoy time on campus.
“We are really excited about all of the renovations and upgrades taking place on both of our campuses,” Rodgers said. “One area that we needed to address was a ‘student-space’ for students on our Enterprise campus. Our students are at the heart of everything we do. It is important that we create a special place for them to relax and enjoy some downtime while on campus.”
He said that since students already used Weevil Center to socialize and play games that it made sense to redesign and upgrade the area for students.
“I am proud of our students and want them to enjoy being on campus and create great memories with their classmates,” Rodgers said. "We have great students, and I want them to have the very best we can offer them here at ESCC."
