    The Kennedy Center underwent extensive remodeling, including the renovation and relocation of the Library Resource Center. The former space occupied by the LRC is now a one-stop welcome center for all of Student Affairs, including Admissions, Financial Aid, Registration, and Advising. The Business Office, career advising personnel, campus safety and security, continuing education, and campus administration also are located in the remodeled space. There also is a conference room located in the Welcome Center. The Center is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

    The former area used by campus administration was remodeled into a learning commons space near the LRC. Included is a tutoring center. Both open and private study spaces also were built for students. Also, the Testing Center relocated from Jackson Hall to the Kennedy Center.

    Students are able to receive assistance in remodeled spaces within the Kennedy Center.
