Bringing it Home Innovation Village

Got the email today. I just got home from work. I'm surprised it isn't posted here already

It’s a great time be part of the Owl community. Innovation Village at Florida Atlantic University on the Boca Raton campus is transforming campus life experiences for students, alumni and the community. Two important projects, the FAU Campus Recreation & Fitness Center and the Marleen & Harold Forkas Alumni Center have already opened and planning has begun for an upper-division residence hall.

Here are some details on recent developments:

The Marleen & Harold Forkas Alumni Center – which opened in 2008 and houses a great hall, two board rooms, three classrooms, a library, two large reception areas, a mentoring center and a fully equipped catering kitchen – is a permanent “home away from home” for FAU’s ever-growing alumni and a gathering place for a variety of University-wide traditions and celebrations.

The new, state-of-the-art stadium – opening no later than 2011 – will bring home the Owl football team, offering shared experiences and lasting memories to students and the University community alike that enhance and build University tradition.

The planned residence halls, featuring premium, apartment-style living, will increase on-campus housing by 50%, enhance student involvement in campus activities as well as continue to attract high-quality students from across the region, Florida, the nation and the world.

The FAU Recreation & Fitness Center, which opened in January 2009 and is currently undergoing a $7.7 million, 38,000-square-foot addition slated to open in Spring 2010, is a place where students, faculty, staff and alumni meet, workout, relax and enjoy being part of FAU campus life.

Innovation Village… bringing it home.

Like I said in a previous post. I don't think the original intention for FAU was to be a "commuter school". FAU is being restored to what it was intended to be. A traditional University.
