Students flocked to the behind-the-scenes sneak peak of the new AT&T Learning Studio at the Red Carpet Premiere from 7-9 p.m. on Feb. 24.

The Red Carpet Premiere showcased the various spaces and functions of the AT&T Learning Studio, which celebrates its official opening at a 2:15 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony on Feb. 28.

Students can look forward to the following features:

  • Recording studios
  • Collaboration rooms
  • Idea rooms
  • Digital diners
  • Mobility and media specialists
  • Media collections
  • The Speaking Center

Tim Newman, sophomore information technology major from Ulysses, Kan., said he was excited to attend the special preview.

“I wanted to see all the possibilities that would come out of the space,” Newman said.  “Aesthetically, it’s just beautiful.”

Patrick Luberus, freshman information technology major from Manhattan, Kan., said he also really enjoyed the environment.

“I think that because it was built specifically for student collaboration, I’ll get work done and still have fun.”

Clint Jones, freshman biology major from Fort Worth, won a 320 GB hard drive at the event.

“I’ll be up here mostly for online Web learning,” Jones said.  “And I might just come up to hang out.”

Jones’ brother, Ethan Jones, junior business marketing major from Fort Worth, agreed.

“There’s a lot more space,” Jones said. “And it has all the bells and whistles. This might be the new social area.”
