The CORE building – The pioneer

After a few years of construction, a long quarantine, and several semesters later, the Pioneers have a new place to study on campus.

Located where the Agora Stage once stood, the CORE building offers new study spaces for in-person and online collaboration, meditation spaces for mental well-being, and tutoring spaces for academic and professional development. . The CORE is also equipped with resources to help students with library books, printers, and equipment rentals.

In addition to a previous article written by former editor, Monet Troche, and current photo editor, Paolo Acob, the pioneer documents CORE’s progress over the past few years, from initial construction in 2020 to the opening of the CORE in the fall of 2022.
