Siebens Forum Student Center Renovation

Storm Lake, Iowa

The Siebens Forum renovation transformed the dated, dark spaces of the student center into a dynamic, inviting, interactive heart of the campus for students. Refreshed amenities such as accessible lounges and study areas, game room, campus bookstore, and classrooms pair contemporary and modular seating options with technology to empower students to shape their own learning experience. The interiors offer framed views of campus and Storm Lake, utilizing colors that complement the natural landscape.

The improvements also include an enhanced dining experience, focused on student wellness, and a brighter appearance with vibrant colors and updated lighting. With the reimagining of the student center, Buena Vista University welcomes students to drive their own educational and extracurricular activities within a flexible facility of the future.
