The New Student Center Project is to create a new 100,230 (GSF) building that will provide the needed space for a fully functional student center. This new building will replace the existing Alphonso Elder Student Union. The new building will include a large multi-use gathering space seating up to 1,000 people for conferences and banquets, small- and medium-sized conference rooms, administrative offices for student union operations, and office space for student organizations. An auditorium that can accommodate the full freshman class (1,750 seats) is planned. Additional facilities will be provided for food services, public computer stations, and student convenience needs.
