Welcome Center

The Welcome Center in Squires Student Center is staffed with knowledgeable students and full-time employees who are ready to answer questions about Student Engagement and Campus Life, the university, and the surrounding community. The Welcome Center is where you can learn more about events, get maps, or look for lost and found articles.

Our welcome center houses an extensive selection of information, some of which is available in brochure form located to the left of the desk in our pamphlet holders. The rest is found through our attentive information staff.

We also are responsible for all meeting room keys. If you have booked an event through our Event Planning office you will need to come by our front desk to sign in and pick up a key.
