LeTourneau Student Centerr

DC is excited to be part of the new LeTourneau University Student Center, which opened this week in Longview, Texas. Students and faculty have been wowed by the facility which includes a game room, (with XBOX and PlayStation consoles), a multi-purpose meeting space, a prayer room, a commuter lounge, study rooms, and other spaces, including a new restaurant named The Hive where busy LeTourneau Yellowjackets can grab a bite between classes. The entire university is buzzing (sorry, I had to do it) about the new space and we’re thrilled to have been a part of it.

Field View - Final (Large)

DC is excited to announce that construction is moving forward on a major project at Heidelberg University to build the new Hoernemann Stadium and Fox Den Alumni Center. This facility will host various sporting events (including Heidelberg football which was ranked nationally in 2013!) and it will provide an important connection between the upper and lower areas of the Heidelberg campus. This is the third athletic project DC has completed at Heidelberg (the others being the Saurwein Wellness Center and their new turf field) and by improving student connectivity and providing engaging spaces to learn and train, we’re excited to see how DC was able to improve HU’s world so they can continue to achieve their academic and athletic goals.

After a little more than a year, the LeTourneau University Student Center is just about a month away from substantial completion. Transet Co. is doing a great job bringing the project together and working on finishing touches. The all-new LETU Student Center sits in the center of campus and adds a variety of new spaces for the LETU student body. The new Hive restaurant, campus bookstore, offices and gathering areas will provide even more community building opportunities among the students and faculty at LeTourneau.
