Lowman Student Center Expansion Debut

Details from Today@Sam about the Jan. 15 ceremony for the Lowman Student Center expansion:

The official grand opening event for the 80,000 square foot expansion of the LSC [will have] free food, tours, activities, performances, and giveaways.

The expansion includes: A new Kat Klub (complete with an eight-lane bowling alley, plenty of couches and TVs, arcade games, tournament sized pool tables and even a pub called the Three Horse Tavern), a new Orange Ballroom, five new meeting rooms (with incredible views of campus and the surrounding area) and a new atrium that will feature new food options (Oath Pizza and Steak ‘n Shake) connecting with existing restaurants (Chick-fil-a, Subway and Panda Express).

The LSC currently hosts about 8,000 people a day on average. With the community growing, and this expansion, Webber believes that number could easily jump to 11,000 or more. Webber says when you walk through the doors, you can’t help but know you are at Sam Houston State University thanks to all of the finishes full of Bearkat spirit.

There is still more excitement to come to the LSC in the near future. As the second phase of construction is currently underway. It will include a new main entrance from LSC mall area, new lounge and dining spaces, multiple connections into the LSC expansion, a relocated Barns & Noble bookstore and a Starbucks. The projected completion date of the second phase is June of 2020.
