Findorff and Son Inc., Design Collective, Workshop Architects and the many subcontractors, this was truly a team effort of the highest degree.”
“The Commons has elevated the residential and dining experience for our community in ways that we had only hoped for when the project was first imagined,” said Dr. Xavier Cole, vice president for student affairs. “With its premier dining and gathering space, The Commons has become a new ‘living room’ for campus. We remain grateful for the investment in the residential experience for our students.”
