SUU Guided Experiences, Heat Plant tourIn celebration of Southern Utah University’s 125th Birthday, SUU, in partnership with the Visit Cedar City • Brian Head is hosting a series of guided experiences. These tours will showcase the University as never before. Exploring the past, present, and future of SUU, these guided experiences are a true celebration of the spirit of our founders. The May event will be a behind-the-scenes look at a part of campus rarely seen by the public, the Central Heat Plant. 

The Facilities Management department will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the Central Heat Plant and utility distribution systems on campus. This tour will cover the details of how heat is produced and distributed for most of the buildings on campus. We will also talk about electrical, natural gas and data distribution systems. The program will last about an hour and will involve walking up and down stairs and entering small spaces. The tour is not able to accommodate ADA access and will be limited to 15 people per session.

May's tours will be guided by Tiger Funk, assistant vice president for Facilities Management. Tours will be held on Thursday, May 5 and Thursday, May 19 at 7 p.m. Please meet on the north side of the Central Heat Plant (the building with three large stacks on the roof) on the campus of Southern Utah University. SUU Guided Experiences are free and open to all. 

In 1897 the founders of Southern Utah University believed so strongly in the power of education that they risked their lives and finances for the privilege of building and hosting an institution of higher education in rural Cedar City, Utah. Their determination and grit are woven into the cultural fabric of SUU. SUU’s enduring legacy is built on 125 years of fortitude, determination, and community triumph. Celebrate with us as we explore our rich history and prepare for a bright future.
