CU's newest building: C4C
The Center for Community, which broke ground in May, has had some students guessing on what the building is going to be used for.
Many students have been noticing the large cranes and construction crews working on a new building near Regent Drive. This building, which is being completely funded by the University of Colorado, is the Center for Community. Known as C4C, the complex will be home to all of the student services on campus, as well as a state of the art dining hall.
The building, which is about 150,000 square feet, has caught the attention of many of the students. Inside this large building will be the dining hall that will hold around 900 people. Students think the larger occupancy will actually benefit them, hoping it will be well organized.
"I imagine if it was larger, about 900, that the lines would move quicker because they would be set up to take larger quantities of kids", says CU freshman Loel Anderson.
The university is also hoping to expand the idea of a "CU Community". By opening up C4C, the Kittredge Commons will be loosing its dining hall, making Kit residents have to use the new dining facility. Some students think this will favor Kit and the students who live there.
"I think it [c4c] will probably kind of integrate the Kit complex a little more. Like we're kind of isolated right now."
By integrating Kit students into the main campus, they will be able to eat and socialize more with other students from dorms such as Cheyenne-Arapaho, Hallet and Willard.
The Center for Community is scheduled for a soft open next summer, August 2010, to test the dining facility. CU plans to have C4C completely open and functional by October 2010.
