Wednesday was an exciting and historic day for OSU-Cascades and all of Central Oregon as we welcomed students to the first day of classes and into the first completed building on the new campus, Tykeson Hall.
Contractors are finishing a few details on the surrounding site. The large covered bike parking area is complete with racks, lighting and a bicycle repair station. A second covered bike parking area will be installed near the residence hall as we prepare to open that building.
The residence hall and dining/academic building will be under construction until January. Inside the residence hall, ceilings are being installed as are casework in the student lounges and carpet in the hallways. The building will be powered on in the coming weeks which will allow crews to start up mechanical systems.
Kitchen equipment is being installed on the first floor of the dining/academic building and finishes like carpet and casework are being installed in the classrooms on the second floor.
