SGC’s Engram Hall Renovation Nearly Complete, Move-in
Begins This Week
South Georgia State College is excited to announce that the Engram
Hall renovation project is nearly complete. After months of work to
completely modernize the interior and portions of the exterior of this
important building, the departments that will occupy Engram are ready to
begin moving in.
During the week of May 21-25, the offices of Enrollment Management, which
include Admissions, Financial Aid, Registrar, Auxiliary Accountant, and
Cashier, will move from their temporary location in Richey Hall to their new
offices in Engram Hall. The move will take place in sequences, with several
different offices scheduled to re-locate each day throughout the week.
Enrollment Management and the Physical Plant are committed to ensuring that
this project proceeds with as little disruption in services as possible.
Once all offices are in Engram Hall and the final touches are finished, this
building will be a centerpiece for the SGC campus. A ribbon cutting for
Engram Hall will be held on Tuesday, June 19. SGC will announce details of
the ribbon cutting as the event nears.
“For decades, Engram Hall served as our student union, dining hall and
community meeting room. It has always been one of the first buildings that
our students and community members visited when they came to campus. As we
have renovated this important building, our construction team has maintained
the historic integrity of the structure while adding a number of important
modern touches to make this a more customer-friendly facility. I think
everyone -- our faculty/staff, students, parents and community members –
will be very pleased with how this project has turned out. We thank you for
your understanding during the move-in phase of the Engram Hall project, and
we appreciate your patience as we strive to serve our campus community
better,” states Dr. Virginia Carson, SGC President.
