Discussion floats ideas for the future of Moore Hall 

Jacob Fries, Reporter

An informal discussion about what to do with Moore Hall was held on Nov. 8 in the Campbell Student Union.

The brainstorming session, which was led by the Campus Planning Committee, was done in order to gauge what students want out of a renovated Moore Hall. 

The discussion was overseen by Campus Planner Sarah Reid, Raymond Bedoin, the Program Manager of the SUNY Construction Fund, and Tim Kapinski, a planner hired by Buffalo State to oversee the renovations. 

Kapinski stated that they are looking to create a “nucleus” for students that live on campus so that they have more reasons to come out from their dorms. 

While there were recommendations being made for study space, a convenience store, and places for clubs to meet, most of the suggestions from students were centered around wanting more food options on campus. This was popular among students due to wanting a larger variety of options, but also as a backup place for food on campus in case the Student Union has to close due to an emergency, like the water main break last year. 

Reid thought the meeting went well.

“We like to hear from students, especially when it’s a student life-type project,” Reid said. “We’re doing this to make their experience better, so we like to hear what the students have to say.” 

No official decision has yet been made on what the renovation will ultimately be. 

The Record was asked by Student Life not release of the contents of what was said in the meeting.
