Complementing the Flores Residence Hall next door this new Student Center provides a much needed study and lounge area for this part of campus as well a vending area for snacks.  Existing campus details are reinterpreted in the new student center where steep pitched metal roofs relate the massing to the original campus buildings and the lower buildings nearby.  Glazed brick accents were added throughout to distin­guish the new student center as a modern interpretation of the existing campus vocabulary.
