As construction  approaches completion for the new Freshmen Center, staff and students are looking forward to using the completed addition.

After being talked about for years, the Arlington Independent School District approved the bond for the new center and cafeteria with a price tag of $18.5 million.

“This is just kind of to isolate freshmen and give them their own entrance, almost like a junior high with an eighth and ninth grade,” principal Fernando Benavides said. “Also, of course to give you guys a new cafeteria.”

Freshman Algebra I teacher Diana Guerrero believes this new expansion will make it easier for everyone to mobilize throughout campus.

“I thought it was a good idea,” Guerrero said. “It would help the overall population keeping the freshmen kind of sheltered from the rest of the school.”

Benavides said the new center will have more than enough classroom space and the new cafeteria will hold more students than the old one.

“It feels great,” freshman Joceline Aguilar said about the new space. “You never get mixed up with the other big kids.”

Campus-wide construction projects are expected to end by October 2019, but the Freshmen Center is up and running.
