What would you like to see in the new proposed student centre?

SAITSA announced on Jan. 23 that a new student centre was being planned for SAIT’s main campus.

SAIT students have a lot of ideas of how that new space should be used.

April Pasion, a first-year travel and tourism student said we need more study space on campus.

“The library is always packed,” She added.

Students in the auto service technology program agreed that what students really need is a place to de-stress.

Bruce Xue, Galen Kovats and Austin Nelson all agreed that a nap room was key.

Brandon Butler had another thought.

“A games room would be great to just go and blow off some steam.”

He was particularly sold on the idea of go carts.

His classmate, Kevin Yuen had another idea.

“A puppy room—to go and play with puppies—would be awesome.”

Ara Shimoon is a contract instructor in the GCPT program and a SAIT alumnus who has some other ideas about the new student centre.

“We need a better events centre,” said Shimoon.

“We’re losing out on events and private functions because we just don’t have the space for it like other post secondaries do.”
