JOHN W. ELROD UNIVERSITY COMMONS
The John W. Elrod University Commons brings together student, faculty and staff services and blends state-of-the-art technology with the historic charm of the campus architecture. The 89,000-square-foot building opened in late summer 2004 and is the home to the Division of Student Affairs, University Store, Career Development Center, the Marketplace and Café '77 dining facilities, a game room and TV lounge, a 196-seat theater and auditorium, student organization offices, and meeting spaces. The outdoor amphitheater adds a gathering place and a boardwalk bridge connects the Elrod Commons to Cadaver Bridge and the parking garage.
