ORU students previewed the new Armand Hammer Alumni-Student Center on Sunday evening.

The new center is 28,000 square feet and is the first major building to be constructed on the ORU campus in over 30 years.

FOX23 toured the center prior to the viewing with Public Relations Specialist for ORU, Carissa Bratschun.

Bratschun says that center and all of the amenities will offer the student body a place for food, fun and fellowship.

“The can come together on campus and be able to hang out and do homework, eat and enjoy some recreational time,” said Bratschun.

Construction on the project began last January. ORU sophomore, Lacey Russ, tells FOX23 she has been anxiously awaiting the project’s completion since construction started.

“As a student and as a student body we are ecstatic to have a space that is our own,” said Russ, “It will great to have a place to study and hang out and play games on campus.”

The first level of the center offers a recreational area for students including gaming stations, two dining areas, study rooms and the largest television in Oklahoma.

The second level of the center is dedicated to ORU’s Alumni and Development Offices.

The official grand opening and dedication will take place on February 1, 2013.
