Also located on the first floor is a ballroom for university and community events. The second floor features the campus “living room,” retail dining, a small bookstore, information desk, and pool tables. The campus living room is a cozy gathering place for students and features warm colors, fireplaces, and comfortable chairs. The building’s third floor is dedicated to student meeting spaces and organizations and includes 600 sq. ft. of workspace with computer banks and multiple meeting rooms for students and clubs to employ and reserve.
