The University Center is the heart of student campus life, providing opportunities for cultural, social, and recreational activities. The University Center operates as a complement to the educational objectives of the University and provides a place for socialization and recreational activities between classes.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the University Center was relocated in a temporary facility on the University’s Lake Campus. A lounging area and a limited number of vending machines and video games are available to students in this temporary facility. Thus, the University Center represents the focus of non-academic campus life and provides the services needed to facilitate student interaction through its various programs.
