We hope you and your colleagues will consider joining us for this summer’s ACUI Region 1 Drive-Around Tour! This year’s tour will feature facilities at schools from southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts, and will take place over two days, from July 16-17, 2013. In order to help you get a feel for what to expect, here are some of the planned highlights for the tour.
The program will start on Tuesday, July 16 at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, NH. Here, we’ll check out the Robert A. Freese Student Center, which underwent a full renovation, completed in December of 2012. Unique features include a student-run Pub, multi-functional student organization suite, and interfaith prayer room.
After lunch at SNHU, the tour will continue on to Keene State College in Keene, NH. Participants will be treated to a tour of the LP Young Student Center, with features including an overview of the Building Event Specialist Team and the Night Owl Café “Sizzler” lunch program.
Day Two of the tour will begin at Fitchburg State University in Fitchburg, MA. The main focus of this stop will be the Hammond Campus Center, a 200,000 square foot facility that is currently undergoing a full renovation. The space features a full student events/setup staff that handles over 4,000 events and meetings each year. In addition, the building is dual purpose, as it also houses a library.
Our final stop on the tour will be Merrimack College in North Andover, MA. Here, we’ll explore the Gladys Sakowich Campus Center and Anthony Sakowich Recreation Center, a 130,000 square foot facility that is the centerpiece of the campus. This building has a number of features, including a service learning center, a Pub, and multiple meeting rooms.
These are just a few of the highlights that will be featured in this summer’s Drive-Around Tour. There is certainly a whole lot more to see! We hope you’ll join us for one or both of the days. A one day tour is $30.00 for ACUI members, or you can attend both days for $50.00. Lunches are included for both tour days, in addition to small snacks. Participants can provide their own transportation or can opt to take a group bus for an extra $10.00 per person.
If you plan on attending both days, we recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Keene, NH for overnight accommodations (http://www.ihg.com/holidayinnexpress/hotels/us/en/keene/). At the end of the second day, we will head back to Southern New Hampshire University to pick up any cars left on campus the first day.
