Academic Center

If you need information, you've come to the right place.
The Kayser Academic Center unites the school’s Academic and College Advising Offices, Technology Center, Library, and Research Services at the heart of the campus. It maintains a collection of 14,000+ books and magazines, with thousands of additional digital publications available. Students and faculty can search the library's collection from anywhere via our online catalog.

Renovated in 2014 thanks to a generous gift from the Kayser family in memory of Leo Kayser Jr., former Board member, alumnus parent and grandparent, the Center offers quiet spots to read, study, research, and write. The Slaughter Reading Room and Engel Terrace provide additional spaces for students to work together on small group projects.
