Through Our Eyes

The Through Our Eyes student photography display is meant to give students an opportunity to depict various aspects of campus life through photography.
Each semester, students are encouraged to submit their own photographs portraying a different theme or element of student life. Open-ended themes allow students the freedom to create unique and personal entries.

History & Sustainability of the WCP

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a voluntary certification program that can be applied to any building type and any building lifecycle phase. It promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in key areas. Once a parking lot at the center of campus, and now a green hub of student life, the William C. Powers, Jr. Student Activity Center achieved the LEED Gold rating on April 29, 2012.
