Students from Drafting Class - First Slot
59cbedc8b0242

Thanks to Olivet Nazarene University and Jim Patterson for allowing the Kankakee Area Career Center Drafting +3D Design students to tour the the ONU Student Life and Recreation Center.

KACC students were so thrilled, they wrote thank you statements to Mr. Patterson which we are sharing below:

Dear Mr. Patterson,

I want to say thank you for letting us, 3rd slot, have a tour of the building. It was a great time seeing the climbing rock, pool area, basement, and all the rest. Interestingly enough though seeing the floor plan for the arena was my most favorite part.

Jake Nicholson

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

I would like to thank you for giving us a tour of the new building. It was very interesting seeing how all the cooling and heating pipes were. The floor plans were very unique and much detail is in the drafts. Thank you for providing the tour for the class.

Austin Szczepanski

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

I would like to thank you for giving us a tour of your both beautiful and amazing building. It was truly a great experience that I will always remember. I really liked the pool area.

Xavier Neblock

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

I would greatly like to thank you for the wonderful tour of your amazing athletic facility. I really enjoyed all of the parts of the building that most people wouldn't even see, like the basement with the water cooling and heating area. The tour was a great example of how  the architecture of building is important for the tasks the building will fulfill. Thank you again.

Alex Johnson

 

Dear Mr. Patterson

I would like to say thank you for the amazing tour that you gave us 3th slot the other day. My favorite part was when you showed us the field house and the basement, i would have like to see inside of the rock climbing wall. the school is great and the students there are nice. but anyway thank you for the amazing tour.

Trevon Barnes  

 

Dear Mr. Patterson

I would definitely like to thank you for giving us at 3rd slot a chance to take a tour of such a nice place. I really liked learning on how the geothermal equipment in the basement worked and how it is used as part of the school. It would have been nice to have had just a little more time but none the less the tour was great so thank you.

Christian Bisping

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

I would also like to thank you for giving us a tour. I especially was intrigued by the things you showed us. It really gave me some insight on just how much work goes into the designing process of each individual room of a building such as the one we visited. I especially enjoyed the pool and the overall design, specifically the meaning to features that I previously thought were only stylistic.

Drafting Students - Second Slot

Dear Mr. Patterson,

Its Been a while since I have seen you, and it is great to see you doing good. So I just wanted to thank you for showing us around and including everyone into the third slot. Most other people would just say what it is and move on but you got us involved and that made us curious. So that overall made everything better and enhanced our experience. I wouldn't want any other person to show the place around because you presented it off the best.  😉.

Xavier Powers

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

Thank you so much for the wonderful tour! It was very interesting to see that part of ONU and to see rooms that many people do not get the opportunity to see. My favorite part was definitely the recreation room and it is cool to see how some colleges have those. Thank you again!

-Myah Gifford, HHS

 

Thank you Mr. Patterson for taking time out of your day to give me and my class a tour of the ONU pool and athletic areas. Thank you for also showing us what goes on behind the scenes, something few people want and get to see.

-Nicholas Redmond, BBCHS

 

Thanks for the tour of the ONU Fitness/pool area. I really was amazed at the indoor track and the indoor pool. As well as the whole plumbing system that was really a interesting sight on how it all works.

-Dominick Panozzo, CCHS

 

Thank you for allowing us to take time out of your day to show us the structure  of the building. I think that the school was amazing but the structure was even better. I also liked that you showed us the plumbing system.

Morgan Pawloski, HHS

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

Thank you for taking time out of your day and touring us around one of the well constructed buildings at Olivet. It was great to get outside the classroom and explore something different! I hope we can tour another soon.

Hailey Ullman, HHS

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

Thank you for letting us come visit the university, and showing us the architectural designs for the building. It was a fun time seeing how everything runs as well as the many floor plans you had. I hope we get to see them again soon and do more tours of the other buildings.

Joshua Nichols, HHS
 


Dear Mr. Patterson,
I appreciate the time you took to show us the way things work around ONU. It was very interesting to see how many complex things can go together to make it all work. I especially liked seeing the pool pump room and knowing how it filtered the water and kept it all running. The floor plans were interesting as well seeing what went into making something and the original idea of it. It would be nice to go back and look at more stuff in the University.

Daemien Aldridge, BBCHS

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

Thank you so much for the amazing tour you gave our group! Seeing the open space outside the weight room really triggered my inner Architect and had me brainstorming. I would like to design a layout for that space that you mentioned could possibly be an outside deck with a little cafe. I think this could be an amazing opportunity for me to have in my portfolio moving on with my search for a college. Further more I think with the help of Mr. Kelley, I could have the skills to make this layout a real project in the future.

Kory Kohler, Clifton Central

Dear Mr. Patterson,

Thank you Mr. Patterson for taking your time out to give us a little tour around Olivet. It was interesting to see some of what they have there. Overall, I thank you for showing us a bit of Olivet.

Sincerely,

Emmanuel Pendleton

Dear Mr. Patterson,

 

I wanted to thank you for the tour that you gave us. From the part that I was able to be there, it was very informative and I learned a lot. Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Amanda Ludwig

 

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

 

I personally want to thank you for letting us come to Olivet to take a little tour around. A lot of the places that you showed us were huge and they were honestly amazing. I was scared of that little room though. I learned a lot about your air conditioning system and I thought it was pretty interesting to say the least. Again, thank you for the opportunity to come.

 

Sincerely,

Arriyana Felix

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

I really had a good time having you as our tour person. You really did an amazing job in explaining to us what each department consisted of. Not to mention all of the building what designed very well and was just the right proportion. I do really consider enrolling into that college. Thank you for taking your time to explain to us about the college.

 

Sincerely,

Yiecel Zavala

 

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

 

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to give us a tour around ONU. I really enjoyed the tour of all the things that keep the buildings running, it was very interesting to take a look at the main background. My favorite part was the pool room, and learning about the different pipes, pumps, and water heating that goes alone with it. Overall I want to thank you for being a very good tour guy as well, you did an amazing job explaining and getting into detail to show us what's keeping ONU together.

 

Lashae Davis

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

 

Thanks for taking the time to give us the tour around ONU. All the places we went to were very interesting. I liked the pool room and learning about the plumbing system and how it was all operated. I never really sat down and thought about all the mechanical and electrical systems that go into a college campus. You did a good job explaining everything, keep doing what your doing.

 

Jalen Williams

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

 

Thank you for taking time out of your day to show my class and I around your building. I enjoyed learning about the unique make up of the building as well as seeing how much thought was put in designing the rec areas so that it caters to the students. This is the only school I know off that uses well water to cool its building.

 

Sincerely,

Dayo Mccoy

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

 

Thank you very much for the tour! I really enjoyed seeing the campus, and seeing behind the scenes of what goes on behind the walls. You are very good at giving tours and are a very nice person. You kept my attention the whole time and learning about the mechanics was very interesting. With your explanation you can tell that a lot of detail was put into running the building efficiently and with the students in mind.

 

Sincerely,

Matt Thomas

 

Dear Mr. Patterson,

 

I would like to thank you for relinquishing time from your schedule to give us a tour of the campus. The experience was truly an enjoyable one. It was really interesting to view all the aspects that make up something we use everyday. The lazy river was one of my favorite parts of the tour. Thank you again!

 

Sincerely,

Alaiah Cozart
