L.A. Pittenger Student Center serves as a hub for many on-campus student organizations, programs, and services. And it is even better with renovations completed in 2010.

Below are just a few features of the Student Center.

Student Center Tally Food Court  


The Student Center Tally Food Court features a Taco Bell, Starbucks, salad bar, grill favorites, soups and comfort foods, and grab-and-go items. Enjoy a homestyle breakfast with made-to-order omelets and waffles or treat yourself to a specialty lunch entree at the chef’s station with display cooking by Chef Jason Reynolds.




The hotel encompasses the third floor, and is where many important university guests stay. It is a popular option for many families during the Student Center Programs' Family Weekend, held each fall.  Guests have a number of amenities at their disposal with the Student Center Tally food court as an option as well as free Wi-Fi and free parking. Smoking is not permitted in the Student Center Hotel. For more information, please consult the smoking policy. For reservations call 765-285-1555.
