Center for Student Life and College of Business | University of Findlay
- FINDLAY, OH
- 75,000 sq. ft.
University of Findlay's new center for student life.
This new state-of-the-art learning facility for the College of Business including classrooms, lecture halls, and flex spaces. These rooms, along with two creative learning centers, an investment trading room and a “Big Ideas” incubator lab are designed to inspire creativity and foster innovative learning and collaboration. The College of Business dean’s suite and all offices for COB faculty and staff will be on the same floor.
Environmental graphics are individually being created yet will seamlessly be woven together for the three distinct spaces: College of Business, Student Life Center and support spaces. Together, bright punches of color, inspiring dimensional quotes and memorable donor wall elements create a student experience that is engaging, playful while visually complimenting the timeless architecture and interior design.
A two story central gathering space with dining will offer students an area to not only eat, but study, meet and relax. The building will also include a bookstore, a campus communications center, a student leadership development suite, and the Center of Civic Engagement. At the heart of campus, this new building will also serve as a gathering place for other academic programs, and as a venue for campus and community arts and entertainment.
The project was awarded Outstanding Design - Post Secondary Education - 2019 Architectural Portfolio from American School & University.
