Home|University Life

The Centennial Student Union is the students’ House of Serendipity offering pleasant surprises that INVITE, INVOLVE and INSPIRE.

"I like to call the Union the House of Serendipity. You go for one thing and you get more than you bargained for. It's inescapable. It gets into your head and into your heart, and you're never the same again. The right union will change you." - C. Shaw Smith Association of College Unions International

MAVERICK SHOP is the new name for the campus bookstore. Still in its same location on the Main Level of the Centennial Student Union, the University's official bookstore offers new, used, rental and digital textbooks as well as supplies and your favorite Maverick gear. Visit Maverick Shop Online



At the CSU, an invitation to experience "serendipity" translates into discoveries that feed the body, mind and spirit.



The CSU offers countless opportunities for student involvement and personal enrichment. Visit Student Activities to learn more.



Together people and places inspire creativity, conversation and confidence.
