Curtiss Hall, the branch of West Complex that houses employee offices,
was officially dedicated on April 16, 1997. This building was named
for Charles B. Curtiss, a member of the original group of community
members who founded SVSU.
May 16, 1997 Groening Commons,
which is the atrium of West Complex, was dedicated. It is named
after William A. Groening, a member of
the group that worked to create both SVSU and Delta College. He
also served as the first chairman of the SVSU Board of Control.
Groening Commons encompasses the mezzanine and entryways to both
the Performing Arts Theatre and the Rhea E. Miller Recital Hall.
during this busy year, Congressman James A. Barcia, perhaps SVSU's
most famous graduate, returned to his alma mater on March 17, 1997
to lead political science classes in a "professor for a day" program.
Barcia was a former student government president at SVSU and a 1974
graduate, he is currently the senator from Michigan's 5th District.
