On Feb. 18, some of Piedmont’s administration gave a tour of the inside of the new student commons. Assistant Vice President  for Administrative Services Parks Miller and Vice President for Academic Affairs Perry Rettig conducted the tour of the commons and answered questions about what all will be included inside the new building. Those who attended the tour were President of the Student Government Association (SGA) Sam Thomas and Vice President of SGA Josh McGowan and the Navigator staff. Miller explained that the building will be open 24 hours while the dining hall and the rock climbing hall will operate on certain hours. The new building will also hold all of the administrative offices that are in the Lane Student Center.
