Welcome to the Colvard Student Union! We are both a facility and a department which offers a variety of student programs. The Union, which originally opened in 1964, underwent a major, 17-month renovation and expansion. The project began in August 2006 and was completed in late December 2007 in time for our re-opening in January 2008. This is truly a state-of-the art facility and was well worth the wait. The Colvard Student Union serves as the center of university community life. Our Event Services office books the Amphitheater, Bettersworth Auditorium, and all the rooms in the Union in addition to most other spaces on campus. Come enjoy the many dining options available on the first floor or sit back and relax in one of the many quiet, study spaces throughout the building. If getting involved on campus is something that you want to experience, visit the Campus Activities Board office or the Center for Student Involvement on the third floor.
