The new Student Services Building, funded by local bond money, consolidates existing programs spread throughout its East and West Campuses into a one-stop-shop while allowing for departmental growth. The fundamental goal for the project was to support the Student Services staff in serving aspiring current and past students in an integrated cross-departmental way. Other project priorities focused on centralizing organization, strengthening relationships to campus and community, creating a welcoming building and campus image, and maintaining historical landscapes.
