An inspiring point of entry for prospective students and families, the Susie L. Wilson ’87 Welcome Center creates a bold and lasting first impression of the university and serves as a contemporary, high-functioning space for the Office of Admission. Conveniently and visibly located at the east entrance to campus, the center is an inviting new home for the thousands of prospective students and their families who visit each year, providing a sense of hospitality, accessibility, and comfort, as well as a sense of excitement and anticipation about what it means to join the Logger community.
