St. Philip's College Celebrates Two Grand Openings

Alamo Colleges District – St. Philip’s College (SPC) and the entire community had twice as much to celebrate last week with the grand openings of the Good Samaritan Veterans Outreach and Transition Center GSVOTC) and the renovated Turbon Student Center. SPC President Dr. Adena Williams Loston was joined by Alamo Colleges District Board Chair Dr. Yvonne Katz, Trustee Denver McClendon and other dignitaries as they cut the ribbons to officially open the new facilities.

The GSVOTC opening is the culmination of a partnership begun in 2011 between the City of San Antonio, the Alamo Colleges District and SPC to renovate an historic building  adjacent to the SPC main campus to create a center that will serve all veterans across the city, including those who are Alamo Colleges District students. At the center, veterans and their family members will be offered a supportive environment and personalized services that include free job training, financial counseling, health and wellness, legal services, business start-up assistance and information on their educational options. The modern steel and glass building occupies the sites of the former Good Samaritan Hospital, constructed in 1915.  The facility was designed by Pfluger Associate Architects and constructed by Texas-based general contractor SpawGlass.

The newly renovated Turbon Student Center transformed the 64-year-old facility into a hub of student government, leadership and student activities where the best practices in student leadership, informal education and social activities can realize their optimum potential. Triple the size of the original building, the 28,000-square-foot, two story complex houses a U.S.Post Office for public use, along with the college bookstore, a café, a six-lane bowling alley, space for ping pong and billards tables and video games and student lockers. The Center also features two  outdoor patios, numbers large TV’s and offices for the Director of Student Success and the Student Government Association. As part of the Center’s grand opening festivities, Sally Turbon, widow of Everett L. Turbon, who gave the building its name, unveiled a new portrait of her husband which will be displayed in the Center and received a ceremonial key to the building. The Turbon Student Center also was designed by Pfluger and constructed by general contractor Skanska.
