Hoover-Price Campus Center
Hoover-Price Campus Center 1962
The University's Campus Center is named in honor of the Hoover Company of North Canton and the late Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Price of North Canton, principal donors for the building. It is a one-story structure of 55,800 square feet located on the northwest edge of the campus. The Campus Center is the extra-curricular heart of the campus. Expanded in 1996, the Campus Center includes offices for many student services including the Academic Support Center, and the offices of Disability Support Services, Campus Card and Facilities Scheduling and Auxiliary Services. In addition, the Campus Center is home to most of the Office of Student Affairs staff, including the vice president for student affairs and dean of the University and associate dean of students, as well as Residence Life, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Student Involvement and Leadership, Counseling Services, Alcohol, Drug and Wellness Education and Career Development.
Both the Kresge Dining Commons and the B & B Cafe were renovated in 2006-2007 and are popular gathering spots for students. The Campus Center is also home to the University Store, a computer lab, student mailboxes, the University radio station, and offices for student publications and student organizations. The Alumni Room, East Room, and West Room, as well as the Osborne and Deuble Conference rooms, provide accommodations for the meeting space. The mezzanine level, added in 1988, houses the CCTV and audio-visual operation. A student-staffed Information Desk and the main University switchboard are also located in the Campus Center.
