Bellevue College has named its student center the Jean Sarto Floten Student Union. The College’s Board of Trustees took the action Wednesday, June 29.
The student center is the hub of BC campus student activity. It houses student lounges, coffee shops, meeting rooms and study areas as well as the college cafeteria. The second floor of the complex is home to student government, a variety of clubs and the campus newspaper, the Jibsheet.
Floten’s tenure as Bellevue College president began in 1989. She announced in May that she is leaving BC to take a position as Chancellor of WGU Washington.
The BC Board of Trustees has appointed Laura Saunders as interim president and begun a national search for a new president.
