Cesar Chavez Student Center
Located in the center of Campus, this unique modern structure serves as a mecca for student-focused activities. In addition to housing many organizations that enhance student life, this spacious complex is also the location for a multitude of needed services such as the campus Bookstore, the offices of campus student government, meeting and conference rooms, and twelve separate food facilities. The Center provides comfortable lounge areas for rest, relaxation, conversation or studying. Live entertainment and movies are often scheduled in the Depot and on Malcolm X Plaza, and both student and non-student art exhibits are shown in the Art Gallery. Multicultural programming is coordinated through the Center’s Richard Oakes Multicultural Center. Jack Adams Hall, a 450-seat auditorium, is the venue for guest speakers, workshops and special events. Other interests such as billiards and video games are provided for in the Center’s Rac’n’Cue Games room.
Student fees and revenues generated by the Center’s many varied activities fund the building and the services it provides. An elected governing board decides upon funding allocation, thus allowing direct student input into the Student Center operations. Elections for student representation to the board occur every Fall and students who meet the academic requirements as specified by the Chancellor’s Office are encouraged to run. Interested students can get information from the Center’s business office.
