Student Activity Fee (SAF) Special Projects

While evaluating my surroundings, I am always looking for ways to improve spaces to make them more enjoyable and useful. The projects below were the result of my efforts to secure funding through internal grants written to the Student Activity Fee Board and, consequently, leading the projects through to completion.

Game Room Makeover

In the fall of 2007, I wrote a $7,000 grant to complete overhaul the Penn State Berks game room. although the grant was fully awarded, I was able to complete the entire project for under $5,500. Click the image at right to see more images.

The project included:

 Resurface the old pool tables with better blue felt
that featured the PSU logo.

 Purchase PSU pool cues and billiard balls.

 Paint the entire room and have custom graphics designed, created and installed.

 Contract with a local arcade to supply video games
and coin changer.

 Purchase of PSU spectator tables, PSU high table, PSU chairs, and PSU carpets (not shown).

 Purchase a cue rack and ping pong paddle holder.

 Purchase new bulletin boards (not shown) and shelving.


 

Showcase Renovation

In the spring of 2009, I wrote a $2,800 grant to renovate the showcases in the Perkins Student Center at Penn State Berks. At the time, the showcases were constructed of 4 different materials and their were another 4 materials being used as shelves. The shelves were held in place by unattractive, adjustable metal brackets. The proposal was for an overhaul done using slatwalls. Click the image at

The project included:

 Purchase 4'x8' sheets of slatwall with reinforced aluminum grooves to support heavier objects.

 Purchase a variety of slatwall shelving, brackets, hooks and sign holders.

 Order custom glass shelves.


 



 


Locker Installation

In the spring of 2008, I wrote a $4,100 grant to install lockers in the Perkins Student Center at Penn State Berks. At the time, there were no lockers on campus and commuter students frequently complained about this. After looking around campus, it became apparent that there were a few locations in stairwells that lockers could be installed and not inhibit traffic flow. Click the image at

The project included:

 Purchase lockers and combination locks.

 Have lockers assembled and installed.
