After three years of dreaming about making W.G. Pearson our home, today we finally moved into the building and started our journey! I eagerly greeted our team this morning at the front entrance singing Joy to the World to officially welcome them into the space and then lead them on a tour. Although I have given my fair share of hard hat tours this year, this one was different. There were no hard hats, just a sea of Student U blue shirts and our dedicated full-time team experiencing the renovated building together for the first time. Seeing our team's excitement about the building was a humbling moment for me. Listening to their individual and collective dreams for what we will be able to accomplish together in this space was energizing. Watching them help each other move boxes and set up furniture in their permanent offices felt like a dream come true. There is so much potential in this 55,000 sq. ft. building. We cannot wait to share it with you! Please mark your calendars for our grand opening on October 20, 2018! Until then, please enjoy some pictures and videos from the day!
