Georges Student Center

Closed for Summer 2018. All of Clemons Library will be temporarily closed for HVAC upgrades from just after spring finals until mid-August 2018.

The Dathel and John Georges Student Center is located on the second floor of Clemons Library. It opened its doors in October 2017 as a focal point of the University’s Total Advising Initiative. The Center is home to a number of small meeting rooms and conference rooms designed for flexible use by faculty, staff, and students. The well-lit space is popular with students looking for a place to study.

PROGRAMMING

A number of staff and support offices can be found in the Georges Student Center. The Career Center’s Pre-Health & Law Advisors, Student Financial Services, and Transfer Student Peer Advisors each offer walk-in hours. The Writing Center, the Source Dorks, ePortfolio Peer Consultants, and Group Problem Solving Initiative (chemistry and calculus support) can all be found here as well. The Contemplative Sciences Center holds classes six days per week.

Academic departments, student affairs offices, and student groups focused on professional development or peer advising are encouraged to make use of the space for information sessions, drop-in hours, and workshops. Get in touch with Katie Densberger for more information or a tour.
