The J.C. Huizenga Exchange, Student Advising Services, Student Outreach Centers, and the Charles W. Loosemore Forum

An impressive glass entrance to the building opens the door to endless opportunities for students and visitors in this mixed-use space. Student advising areas blend with multiple study areas and student organization space, while six outreach centers serve to connect the business and university communities. A multi-purpose room supports a variety of programs designed to enhance learning and community interaction. Donors are recognized near the entrance, and the achievements of L. William "Bill" Seidman are showcased in a display in the Exchange.
