Fall 2000 students were the first to use this 165,000-square-foot center. The design includes a four-story rotunda, a third-floor gallery with clerestory windows, and a climate-controlled pedestrian bridge leading to the academic quadrangle. In addition, there is a fireside social lounge, a quiet study lounge, student art gallery, a large, tiered meeting chamber, an expanse of first-class conference areas, twin television lounges, a game room and a cyber lab.
Students asked for a "one-stop shopping" building with a consolidation of all student services and functions under one roof. Accommodating this request, the following departments, previously scattered around the campus, are conveniently located in the Millennium Student Center: Student Activities, Student Government, Student Organizations, Evening College, Academic Advising Center, Admissions, Registration, Financial Aid, Cashier, Degree Audit, Career Services, Women's Center, Health Services, Accessibility Services, Food Services, Bookstore, Convenience Stores, and a bank.
