Centennial Student Union, constructed and operated on student funding through activity fees, opened in September of 1967. Its convention- size ballroom was initiated with the internationally-famous Stan Kenton orchestra at the 1967 Homecoming. The building was named as an attempt to perpetuate the historical fact of the institution's centennial celebration. The second stage was completed in 1972. The three-level complex houses a main cafeteria, delicatessen, bookstore, auditorium, ballroom, a gameroom and bowling alley, the Women's Center, the International Student Office, the Reporter office, and various offices and conference rooms.
