The Commons Center
The Commons Center is the community crossroads of The Ingram Commons living and learning community. It has it all: the Dining Hall and great food; a living room with a concert grade grand piano, and the occasional live musical performance; a small rec room with cardio equipment, free weights, and weight machines; meeting and study rooms; and academic support services like the Writing Studio, the Center for Student Professional Development, and the CASPAR premajor advising center. Students from across campus come here for a meal, a quiet place to study, an event, or a meeting with a professor. The third floor of The Commons Center is the home of the Department of Political Science.
From the lights to the layout, The Commons Center was designed to be extremely eco-friendly and efficient. The building has been awarded a Gold LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
