You're Invited to Vol State Humanities Building Grand Opening

Students are raving about the new Steinhauer-Rogan-Black (SRB) Humanities Building. Now the public will get to see the three-story, 30 million dollar facility in person. Vol State is holding a grand opening event on Friday, September 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend.

The SRB Humanities Building opened on the first day of classes for the fall semester. It is student focused in design- from comfortable and stylish study areas, to wide hallways and floor to ceiling windows. The entire building is wired for state-of-the-art classrooms, allowing for better connectivity and virtual collaboration. There is a new Performing Arts Studio that can house everything from plays to poetry readings. A new recording studio will more than triple the size of the other Vol State recording studio. Choral and music practice rooms provide for better instruction. The art studios include a dedicated printmaking room and a ceramics facility.

Guests will be able to view these areas during the open house. There will be heavy hors d’oeuvres for refreshments. The event will start with speakers promptly at 11 a.m. across from the new building in the Wood Campus Center, Mary Cole Nichols Dining Room. Attendees will then cross over the pedestrian bridge to the new SRB Humanities building as a group, signifying a bridge to the future. There is no registration required for the event. The Gallatin campus is located at 1480 Nashville Pike. For more information call 615-230-3571.
