  • study and group work space
  • wireless Internet
  • laptops and tablets available for check-out
  • a furnished kitchen available for student use
  • periodicals
  • student organization meeting spaces
  • extended hours during finals week

Built in 1970 through the generosity of Irene Nunemaker, this uniquely styled building reflects the creative energy of Honors Program faculty, staff, and students. Ms. Nunemaker intended that students meet here for classes, discussions, meetings with visiting professors, and to read the newspapers and magazines to stay on top of recent national and world events.

With three classrooms and the Brosseau Commons meeting space, the Honors Program is able to host Honors courses as well as social and educational events for Honors students. The building also features a rotating collection of student and professional artwork.
