X3Are things that come in threes more satisfying? Mackey Mitchell Architects invites you to find out in three weeks at the ACUHO-I conference in Orlando, FL, where we’ll present three educational programs. Long-time supporters of the Association for College and University Housing Officers International, we’re proud to contribute to this year’s dialogue X3.

In the Monday, June 29 program (Session 7) Mackey Mitchell principal John Burse and architect Clay Phillips will lead a discussion along with Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Director of University Housing, Dr. Jon L Shaffer about SIUC’s vision for the future. In this highly-participatory program, “From High Rises to Contemporary Lodges: Redefining the Community Experience (with a Wrecking Ball)” the team will discuss ideas for a new community experience that will become SIUC’s newest residential district.  This talk is the first of our three programs. More to follow!
