We are excited to announce that we will be beginning the process of updating the Fort Hays State University Scale Model that we created nine years ago.
Did you know? Today, there are approximately 45 buildings that are a part of Fort Hays State University’s campus. Since our model was made in 2012, there have been 8 new buildings added/are in the process of being added.
Then & Now
Originally presented to the university nine years ago, the massive 7-foot by 10-foot Fort Hays State University scale model also features an interactive computer monitor that allows viewers to light up different buildings and learn more information about FHSU’s campus. The model has been used as an asset to the university for years to recruit prospective students and faculty, while also serving as an important tool for new students orienting to campus. An invaluable visualization resource, the interactive model helps people keep up to date with all of the exciting new additions to campus as well.
With the amount of renovations that have been made to campus since 2012, the university has requested updates to the model to better represent all of the impressive improvements to campus. The original construction of the model took Global 3D Arts about three years, with nearly a thousand photos of the FHSU campus and its buildings used as reference to create the meticulously designed scale model. Before the model’s 10th anniversary, it will be completely updated for all to enjoy and see how much the campus has grown.
