On November 8, voters in Sioux Falls will make a $115 million decision: whether to build an Events Center in Sioux Falls. Mayor Mike Huether made his first visit to the Globe University campus to educate voters about the proposed events center and educate himself about Globe University.
Career Services Director, Josh Ring gave the Mayor his first tour of the campus.
Along the tour route, Mayor Huether stopped and greeted anyone and everyone in the halls. The Mayor was pleasantly surprised to learn that not all courses were online and many were hands-on and on campus.
“It was my pleasure to introduce the Mayor to members of our faculty, staff and student body,” said Career Services Director, Josh Ring. “It was great to see him embody our ‘We Care’ philosophy while he was introducing himself to everyone he came across.”
Then, before an audience of about 50 staff, faculty and students from Globe, the Mayor Huether presented a 30 minute events center break down of the costs, construction and collaboration needed for the project.
Following the Mayor’s PowerPoint, he opened the floor to a question and answer session. The crowd asked about the proposed area –which will connect to the old Sioux Falls Arena—to future job growth.
“I was most excited about how students were very interactive with this,”said Student Services Coordinator Carla Zebel. “I am really excited about the events center but wish there were more options on location.”
Constitution week continued at Globe University-Sioux Falls with city council member, Dean Karsky. He explained how the council works, when it meets and upcoming events and projects important to residents. He informed Globe students of an upcoming project to build a new off ramp near campus.
