The start of Winter Quarter 2017 brings the completion of the 2016 Remodel of the 4000 Building. This effort began during the summer of 2015 when the Math Learning Center and The Writing and Learning Studio moved into the 4000 building as a way to centralize student academic success and allow more classrooms to be available for instruction.

During the fall of 2015 and the beginning of 2016, the college invested in a 4000 Building Master Planning effort that involved communication with key faculty and staff who work in the 4000 building; students; and the full college community. The outcome was a multi-year plan for the 4000 Building and a specific 2016 Phase of construction.

The construction started during the summer of 2016 and has been completed as of January 6, 2017 with the final installation of the new doors to welcome students into the new academic learning space with open seating, maximum natural light, centralized tutoring and learning centers, and a grand central ASK Desk that will serve students’ library and research needs. More casual study space has been incorporated throughout the second floor. The Biology and Chemistry Learning Center joined the 4000 building last spring and remains on the second floor, along with the Math Learning Center. Tutoring Services has a brand new home in the southwest corner of the second floor and offers support to all students. The Writing and Learning Studio is on the third floor, which they share with some additional study space. Overall, more than 8,500 square feet of additional student space has been made available.

The first floor has had a few refreshing coats of paint and some study areas incorporated into the hallway. The Student Computer Lab on the first floor remains open and ready to support students with their technology needs.

Our investment in the project was from state and local sources and demonstrates the college’s focus on student academic success. The state contributed $750,000 to the project and the college contributed about that same amount from the capital reserve fund.

Sustainable products were used for many of the remodeled areas and new features including the carpeting, paint, counter tops, baseboards, and the acrylic panels. Of these products, anywhere from 4% to 30% of the material was composed of recycled materials.

The project team wishes to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the students, staff, and faculty who have patiently adjusted to the noise and multiple temporary and permanent relocations during the quarter construction. We appreciate your keeping students and their needs at the heart of this remodel. Your never-ending flexibility helped make this project a success.

Please join us in celebrating the completed remodel at the Grand Re-opening Celebration on January 18 at 12:30 pm in the new casual student learning area known as room 4237.

We look forward to celebrating with the whole college community!

The Men’s Basketball team takes on Highline at home this Sat., Dec. 5 at 4pm in the main gym – come out and support them!

How does their season look? Read on.

Shoreline Men’s Basketball team begins the 2015-16 season looking to get back to the NWAC Tournament. Last year was Head Coach Donald Brady’s first year at the helm of the Dolphins program. The 2014-15 team went 11-16 (a six win improvement over the prior year) and finished one game out of the NWAC tournament, losing in heartbreaking fashion on a last second shot to North Region rival Everett. Although few faces remain from the 2014-15 team the building blocks have been set for a program turn around.

The 2015-16 season has already begun with the Pierce Thanksgiving Day Tournament. The Phins came away with a 4th place finish and a 2-1 record over the weekend. Shoreline defeated two perennial playoff teams in Clackamas and Pierce and lost to Green River 62-65 in the tourney. Shoreline Head Coach Donald Brady had this to say about his teams early season performance, “We were happy with our effort and the way we improved over 3 games. Obviously it is very early in the season, but if we can continue to trust the process we have in place then this could be a successful season.”

The Phins return two players from last year’s team. Sophomore Captain Skyler Kelley started 7 games last year as a freshmen and finished 3rd in the NWAC in 3 Point Field Goal percentage and 11th in Free Throw percentage. Kelley averaged 11 points per game last year and looks to improve his overall numbers in his Sophomore season. The other returner is Kwame Kang who had his season cut short last year due to a knee injury. Through 5 games Kang was shooting 40% from 3 and has already contributed big minutes and shots through the Phins first three games this season.

To add to the returners Brady and his staff brought in a number of highly touted recruits. Sophomore Jason Smarr is a transfer from NWAC Champion Clark College. Smarr was a star at Edmonds-Woodway High School where he was first team All-WesCo 3a. “Jason brings championship experience to our young team and has a great work ethic,” Brady said in regards to Smarr.

The Freshmen recruiting class is highlighted by Will Luckett from Inglemoor High School. Luckett was named first team All-KingCo as a Senior. Derrik Dean played his prep ball at Bishop Blanchet where he averaged 15 ppg as a Senior and was Honorable Mention All Metro. “Our goal in recruiting was to get bigger and more athletic,” stated Brady, “with these two players we feel that we accomplished our goal.”

Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 10.55.57 AMThe recruiting class also includes two former high school teammates from Nathan Hale in Ben Steinbrueck and Gadisa Margasa. Steinbrueck currently leads the NWAC in assists through the early part of the season. Torrence Baker is a Garfield graduate that won a 4a State Championship in 2014. “Ben, Gadisa and Torrence bring great defensive intensity and scoring punch to our roster. Their experience in the Metro 3a and KingCo 4a conference mean they have experience playing high level basketball,” said Brady. The recruiting class is rounded out by Joe Ghebrehiwot, Devan Jackson, and Sage Drollinger. “Joe provides an inside-outside scoring option and more size while Devan and Sage provide us with wing depth and more athleticism. All three add great depth to the class.”

The Phins have a tough schedule ahead to prepare for the difficult North Region. Their next game is against Highline at 4pm on Saturday, December 5th. The Phins then compete in the Bellevue Winter Classic and the Yakima Crossover before a single game meeting with Green River to close out 2015. In January the Phins host Yakima before embarking on their North Region schedule.
