The University's new student building is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold building! The center was completed in June of 2010 in honor of the longest serving university president, Paul Locatelli, S.J., who passed away in July of 2010 from pancreatic cancer. The structure was created as a center for student groups and activities, housing large multipurpose rooms and conference rooms. While the second floor has office spaces for student organizations, the lower floor is a 6,000-square-foot assembly hall, complete with disco ball suspended from the 20-foot ceiling.

The Student Activities Center is designed to blend in with other buildings on campus, and integrates energy efficient features like trellises and overhangs to reduce direct solar gain on the south and west face of the building.
