Organized around a two-story atrium, the 82,000 SF Saint Mary’s College Center is alive with activity throughout the day. Students and visitors may select from a variety of food service options. A large lounge acts as a campus living room, and is also used as a venue for dances and receptions. The campus bookstore, a bank, and a convenience store are located in the building as well. Upstairs, past delicate metal trusses and a glazed cupola, are offices for student activities and student government, as well as a private dining room for the university president, complete with an outdoor dining terrace. Downstairs, the facility offers a 100-seat theater for movies and lectures, and meeting rooms for campus conferences.
