ST. CLOUD -- The Miller Center on the campus of St. Cloud State University had a face lift over the summer with the renovation of the Husky Tech area.

The "Husky Tech Support" area has been moved from the basement to the main floor, in place of the former computer lab.

Casey Gordon is the Technology Support Director. She says, by having the facility upstairs, students will now be able to find them easier.

"One of main ways moving upstairs helps students is simply visibility."

Husky Tech provides a number of technology support services for the students, and with the new place they feel they can better provide those services.

"Our main goal here is service, we want to give students those different pieces of service," says Gordon.

As for the computer lab that once stood in its place, Gordon says they moved that area across the hall to provide more of a student lounge.

"We moved the computer lab across the hall, and we actually took out a wall to make that space even bigger," says Gordon. "We wanted to make it more comfortable and casual as well."

The project took five months to complete, and while they are operational they still have some minor details to finish.

"We still have some blue tape on the walls and we are waiting for furniture but we should be completely finished by October 1st," says Gordon.

Members of Husky Tech  plan to have an official grand opening October 16th.
