Victor E. Village
First up for the updated scale models is Victor E. Village! Victor E. Village is home to over 400 students and 17 Learning Communities. This unique building is where many first-year students at Fort Hays State University live and enjoy updated amenities, a comfortable lobby, private pod-styled restrooms and showers, and even an Italian take away restaurant.
The scale of the FHSU model results in a very tiny model that can fit into the palm of your hand! Soon, we will be adding all of the finishing details to the Victor E. Village model, including the paint, stonework, and a roof to replicate the actual building. There will definitely be more exciting updates to come on this part of the model!
Center for Applied Technology
Next, we have the Center for Applied Technology scale model in the works. Another important newer addition on the Fort Hays State University campus, the Center for Applied Technology hosts classes in computer-aided drafting, construction management, graphics, interior design, computer science and more. On the north corner of College Drive and 8th Street, this impressive structure is a whopping 58,000 square feet and came with a price tag of $16.5 million.
Davis Hall, which was razed in 2017 and formerly housed technology studies at FHSU, is still currently present on the campus scale model, but will be removed with the 2021 updates. The intricate details and design on the Center for Applied Technology model will make this building stand out on the FHSU scale model!
Keep an eye out for the full transformation as many more updates and pictures are still to come!
