SDI Prepares for Grand Opening Celebration This Saturday… and YOU are Invited!
- Joey Upper
Sonoran Desert Institute is growing and changing, folks.
In another symptomatic move made by the ever-growing school, SDI has moved from their long-occupied space in Scottsdale, Arizona to 1555 W. University Drive, Ste. 103, Tempe, Arizona- a larger space more capable of handling the growing needs of the successful school, its staff, and its students.
We’re pretty darn thrilled about the whole thing.
In celebration of the occasion, SDI is hosting a Grand Opening celebration this Saturday (March 2) from 11am-2pm, and you’re invited (yes, you)!
“We are so excited to host this Grand Opening celebration,” said Jennifer McInnis, VP of Growth and Marketing at SDI. “The event’s been in the works for months, and we know it’s going to be fun to show students, graduates, industry partners, and community members our new space.”
It won’t be just an open house, of course. The Grand Opening will include food trucks providing complimentary refreshments (while supplies last), music from a local radio station, and more!
“Between the KUPD team, the food trucks, the raffle, and the demos, it should be a really fun event and we hope to have a great turnout!” said McInnis.
This space visitors will be able to see is more than just bigger. It’s better. Among other things, we now have the capability to handle shipping and fulfillment in-house- that means a more direct line from us to our students.
“This is a much larger, more modern-feeling space than our last administrative office, which speaks to the growth and evolution of the school,” Jennifer noted. “Plus, it’s great to have shipping and fulfillment in-house, and I think people will like getting a look at that during the event.”
Last, but certainly not least, it’s our pleasure to announce that the new campus facility will contain a Military and Veteran Services office, a space dedicated to the betterment of our SDI active duty and veteran students.
“Sgt. Michael Beckerman’s story has been so important to us these last few years since naming the scholarship in his honor. We wanted to honor him by dedicating the Military and Veteran Services office in his name, and we hope that every veteran and active duty military student who walks through those doors knows how much his service–and theirs–means to us.” McInnis stated.
We fully expect this event to be an absolute blast — come join us!
