Creighton University law student Stuart Hencke is looking forward to a new place where students can sip coffee and hang out between classes.
For months, he's watched construction of Creighton's Mike and Josie Harper Center. Now that it's finished, students are itching to take a look inside and try out the amenities.
"I'll be using quite a few things in there, like the coffee shop, fitness center and the lounges," said Hencke, 22. "As a law student, we're kind of in that (law school) building all day, so it's going to be nice to have another place to go and unwind."
The Harper Center is Creighton's new student and conference center, slated to open when classes begin Aug. 27. The dark-red brick building has a distinctive octagonal main entrance.
