Many members of the Centre College community recently attended the dedication ceremony for the new Campus Center. The brief ceremony was held on Friday, April 16, at noon, on the front patio of the Campus Center. Those attending received a travel coffee mug commemorating the event.
The College’s new Campus Center opened in October 2009, after construction commenced in June 2008. The two-story, 50,000 square foot facility was a $15 million project and replaced the original Cowan Dining Commons.
The new Campus Center includes:
• The Student Life Office, as well as designated space for student organizations, meetings, storage and an area to make campus signage. There are also four meeting spaces of various sizes that provide flexibility for meetings, meals and other gatherings.
• Two dining facilities: Cowan Dining Commons and a Grille/Snack Bar that provides deli sandwiches, burgers, pizza, smoothies, coffee, etc.
• Comfortable gathering and socializing spaces for students, faculty and staff, including informal seating, fireplaces, and a gaming area that includes pool and ping-pong tables, two flat-screen televisions, and Wii game systems.
