A new student center at a southwest Ohio university will hold a dedication ceremony and open house on Friday.
The three-floor building offers new meeting rooms, offices for student organizations and a theater among other services. Food services include a 1950s-style diner.
The university says two-thirds of the project was funded by more than $32 million from donors, with a $115 per semester student fee supplying the rest of the financing.
A second phase of the project will include more meeting rooms, career services and another dining facility. The university expects to complete that phase by 2017.
