About the Student Center
Students conceptualized and planned for the Student Center during the 2015 college-wide “Dream Out Loud” input sessions. That input helped drive the design with the needs of students in mind.

Features include a Maker Space to develop work and learn new skills, music practice rooms and a film-screening room, modern and healthy dining options, gender-neutral restrooms, a fitness center, a reflection room for meditation and prayer, and event spaces for meetings, performances, and receptions. Student employees will also manage activities, hospitality, and other administrative needs.

  • A food court offering daily service of freshly-prepared meal options, including vegan and vegetarian items, and rotating concepts for each week
