On July 17, approximately 200
summer students enjoyed a pizza dinner and a viewing of “Hall Pass,” courtesy
of Eagle Entertainment.
Rather than taking place in the organization’s usual outdoor or Union theater
venues, the film was shown behind the familiar pane glass windows of an
unlikely location: The Williams Center.
Previously a dining hall, the Williams Center has undergone numerous renovations
in previous months with the goal of becoming an alternative space for student
Students in attendance were largely optimistic about what the new space has to
“I really enjoyed the atmosphere that the renovations made,” said senior
electrical engineering major Nick Pawlak.
“I love the new technology in the building and the amazing design and
furniture. The whole thing looks very modern and perfect for student
organizations. I am so excited to see how they use it in the fall,” said senior
Stephen Warner, psychology major.
Changes made to the Williams Center include the addition of two kitchen areas,
plenty of seating, mosaic walls that double as storage and state-of-the-art
“We have two main screens and five 70-inch screens,” said Sriravong
Sriratanakoul, activities coordinator.
The Williams Center’s refurbishment was a direct result of a collaboration
between Southern’s students and the Office of Student Affairs staff. Sriratanakoul hopes that this joint effort mirrors the way the area is used.
“I hope this space becomes a community resource where we can all collaborate -
students, staff and alumni - can all collaborate. We have technology here that
other ones don’t have,” said Sriratanakoul.
This technology is already being integrated. Prior to the screening of “Hall
Pass,” Eagle ID cards were scanned for data purposes.
“The ID scanning is something that we hope to do more at these kinds of events.
Along with ensuring that student fees are used for students only, we hope to
use the data for assessments of programs and retention purposes. Are the
students who attend free on-campus programs graduating?” said Sriratanakoul.
In addition to being the new on-campus hotspot for students, by students, The
Williams Center is also the new home of Eagle Entertainment and the Traditions
Council. written by Sarah Fonseca of GSU
