My daughter will be in her first year of the SOTS this fall. What is the expected date they plan to have it open? I think they are running a little behind on it, primarily to get the Newnan Center dorms opened on time.

I've heard both will be done by August.

The band hall needs to be ready by then. They have been spread out all over campus for about a year now. Some offices are in Hawkins Hall and the band meets at old SAGA. I imagine it has been a nightmare for them.

Where are these new dorms and the band room (respectively) located?

Also, does anyone know what the long term plans for the old SAGA are?

The new band hall is where the old one was and the new dorms are right behind Claudia Crosby Theater.

I've heard a lot of rumors/plans for old SAGA. Last I heard it was going to the art department.

Weren't some private apartments/houses and the BCM back there? Or in the old parking lot that now serves the new Saga? And by the way, do the kids up there now CALL it Saga anymore?

Those private apartments are still there, but they took some of those houses away. The new dorms are between the BCM and the apartments. The new SAGA parking isn't much bigger than it used to be. It took over some of Clements parking and some band hall parking, that's it.

Yup we still call it SAGA. New students might not know the name because it's brand new, but they catch on.

Glad to hear it! I love that, even if it is a silly little tradition. When I was there we had Frank's Place and old SAGA, but even then SAGA had long since not really been SAGA!

I know some of the band kids have called it tajma-saga, idk if that's just a band thing or it it's a general student body name... either way I think it's pretty funny
