The NPACE center official opening ceremony to the public was an incredible event to be a part of. Throughout the day, I was showing visitors the various projects that students work on in the multimedia lab. They were impressed to see the state-of-the-art technology that the students have access to. My proudest moment was when a visitor stood in amazement that I was a student assistant as a freshman. We explained that Columbus State University always strives to give students access to the best technology available because it is always improving, so it is imperative to stay up-to-date. They were happy to see the serious social networking that NPACE center is a part of because they know that a lot of word goes around through the multiple social media outlets. The NPACE center is clearly going to be a big asset to the community at large as shown by the fact the the Mayors of both Columbus and Phenix City were present. It was when I saw the Mayors that I truly realized how beneficial the NPACE center will be to our communities. I look forward to seeing NPACE center’s future growth.
