Along with the renovations of Robinson and Vulgamore Halls, the Kellogg Center has brought new energy to the heart of the campus.

The entry lobby is defined by a four-story atrium, which connects all levels of the building and serves to visually integrate all the student activities. The building is vibrant and filled with light, creating exciting spaces for students, faculty and staff to gather.

The chapel, which sat dormant for many years, was renovated and serves as the multipurpose activity space. The attic, with its exposed heavy timbers, was converted to a study loft for student organizations. The extensive use of color and cherry wood trim adds to the building’s warmth.
