8:30 – 9:15 a.m.: Bringing It All Together: Serving Academics, Student Life, Athletics, and More Out of One Facility
The technical challenge and scope of Campus Crossroads would have been difficult enough if it were designed for one segment of campus activities. But Campus Crossroads is designed to support academic technology needs during the day, hospitality needs in the evening, and athletic needs on weekends. How was it possible to pull together such a complex construction and integration project in such a short time?
