"I like how it’s open and you can see what’s going on in the rooms and labs. It’s complex and intricate, and I can already feel it’s going to be a positive learning environment. I'm excited to gain more skills and attributes to enhance my career prospects."

"I wasn’t a big fan of the (engineering activity buildings) because they were small, so I’m excited to be in a much bigger space. I like how it’s meant to be interconnected, with the clubs and organizations based out of this building."

-Keely Chacon '21, mechanical engineering

"It's definitely more than I expected. I'm excited about the common labs. I think this building will encourage more collaboration on multidisciplinary projects. The EIC (Engineering Innovation Center) tried to do that, but it never had enough space."

"I’m already proud to be an engineer at Texas A&M, but seeing this building, that pride just skyrockets. I’m going to spend all of my time here.

-Lanise Williams '20, industrial and systems engineering

"I really like what they’ve done with the art. I can tell they spent lots of time working on the design and open spaces and it has paid off."

"I'm a first-generation student from a small town. We didn’t have anything like this. It’s so cool. There's lots of technology and endless ways to learn. I never really had access to this much technology, so I’m ready to dive into all of it."

"I like the open classroom concept; it's collaborative and you don't have to crane your neck to see the board. With the art and open space, we look like a west coast tech school."

-Mike Le '19, electrical engineering

"It's very impressive. I like how it's a facility for all engineering students. Freshmen can interact with upperclassmen, ask them questions and learn from them."
