About The Grand Opening

"It was great, it seemed like there were a thousand people there!"  One attendee's take...

Designed to showcase the university and bring people together, the University would like to invite you to enjoy time with friends and other past alumni. Sit fireside in the living room. Enjoy the lavish ballroom for events, parties and celebrations! Greeting you will be a bronze replica of the universities seal, the only place you will find it other than on your diploma! From the hints of blue and orange, to the extensive volume of art work created by students, alumni and faculty members you will be wowed. Lite, airy and open to say the least.

"The center is designed to be a symbol of the value the university places on alumni and donors. We  know that it is a partnership and that we could not do what we do without the support of our alumni, the community and all of our donor partners."  Laura Simic

The alumni relations group has an expanded space to say the least. Having moved from the old space at 1200 square feet to the new space at 44,000 square feet they have room to grow! With the bulk of the common space on the first floor, you will find the fundraisers on the upper floors, call centers and conference rooms on the second floor as well as a tribute to Dyke Nally which is an array of historical photo's from his personal collection!. The third floor includes, donor relations, planned giving and annual giving. The fourth floor is the foundation group including marketing and communications. Topping it all of is the 4th floor conference room and a balcony with a spectacular views of The stadium and foothills behind!
