The Stevenson Union renovation has reinvigorated student life at the center of the SOU campus. The program includes new food service, retail and a wide array of student programs including the Media Collective, KSOC the student radio station, The Multicultural Resource Center, Women’s Resource Center, International Programs, Disability Services, The Siskiyou newspaper, and ECOS – Ecology Center. The roof top addition of the Student Leadership Center houses leadership programs, student clubs and student government. Glazed on three sides, the Center places student programs as a prominent visual destination on campus and beacon at night. The open plan in the Center provides long-term flexibility and increases interaction between student groups.

The existing Stevenson Union is set at the central core of the campus. Opsis worked closely with the student leadership, union administration and campus facilities to take a “clean slate” review of all programs and spaces and re-purpose the building as a 21st century student-centered facility. The resulting design created identifiable “homes” for a diverse array of student programs and establishes clear neighborhoods of related programs that create synergy between them. The project was accomplished with a three-phase approach that minimized disruption to existing services during construction.
