Plan Your Event
Attractive and functional spaces on campus are available for rental to accommodate community groups, organizations, businesses and private functions.

Another stunning view can be enjoyed in the The Arts Center lobby with its sparking starburst chandeliers, while its 808-capacity main performance hall is equipped with versatile stage options.
The Jacob Brown Memorial Auditorium
